Supported Scanners

Manufacturer-Specific Installation

  • HP All-in-One Printers - Setup HP Print/Scan/Copy printers using HP tools.

  • Epson Scanners - Linux Drivers for many Epson scanners.

  • Brother scanners - Linux drivers for Brother scanners. Please note that which scanner populates in the support search box is dependent on which "Country (Language)" is currently selected. For example, if one searches for model DCP-J715W while "United States(English)" is selected, it won't be found. However, if one has "Deutschland(Deutsch)" it is found.

  • Kodak Scanners - Linux drivers for several Kodak scanners.

Specific Scanners

While the Sane Project does a remarkable job of making most scanners "just work", some scanners may still need additional steps to get working.
