Doxie Scanner on Linux

· Read in about 1 min · (100 Words)

I forget where I found this, but I’m documenting here for posterity. In order to get a Doxie scanner running under Linux, install the sane-backends-drivers-scanners package is installed. Then put the following into a local udev rule:

$ cat /etc/udev/rules.d/10-doxie-scanner.rules
# udevadm info -a -p $(udevadm info -q path -n /dev/bus/usb/001/009)

SUBSYSTEMS=="usb", ATTRS{manufacturer}=="Document Capture Technologies Inc.", ATTRS{idProduct}=="4812", GROUP="scanner"

Create a scanner group and add your user to it.

sudo groupadd -r scanner
sudo usermod -G scanner -a link

Reboot for the group change to take effect. After logging back in, calibrate the scanner:

scanimage --list-devices
scanimage --device genesys:libusb:001:00X --calibrate []
