scanning on color laser jet pro mfp m182nw

Asked by Don Littlefield on 2020-12-10

I am using an MSI Z97 Guard Pro motherboard desktop with I5 cpu. Long time. Upgraded to Debian Buster when released. I use the Gnome desktop also. I recently got a new printer. I have it working to print but not scan. I want to know how to get it to scan. I want to scan pages of books and pictures to PDF files. The printer is:
Color LaserJet Pro MFP M182nw
I have the latest HPLIP install and working.

don@One:/dev$ lpstat -t
scheduler is running
system default destination: HP_Color_LaserJet_MFP_M182nw_502ADE_
device for HP_Color_LaserJet_MFP_M182nw_502ADE_: ipps://NPI502ADE.local:631/ipp/print
HP_Color_LaserJet_MFP_M182nw_502ADE_ accepting requests since Wed 09 Dec 2020 03:11:44 PM CST
printer HP_Color_LaserJet_MFP_M182nw_502ADE_ is idle. enabled since Wed 09 Dec 2020 03:11:44 PM CST

I have tried all the programs I thought were scanner programs but none of them recognize the scanner or the printer for that mater. I want to ask what programs to use to use the scanner feature of the printer? Are there some special instructions necessary to get scanner to be recognized?

Hello Don,

You are nicely set up to do driverless printing, so may as well do driverless
scanning too,

Configure your buster system to use the Backports archive. See

  https://wiki.debian.org/Backports

Install sane-airscan:

  apt -t buster-backports install sane-airscan

Now do

  scanimage -L

and

  airscan-discover

and post their outputs here.

Cheers,

Brian.

Success I have scanned some pages and saved to a file. Some of the pages are upside down so will need to rotate them in the file. What is a good program to work on PDF's like that?I used a program before to add pages together in one file called pkpdf I think. Thta was before I upgraded to Buster so dont have it now. I will look for it next.Thanks Don
