Hi juntjoo, it would help when you give us some more details, like used
sane version, used distribution.

Beside that, your systemd command seems not correct, as "...invalid
argument". Please check the manuals to systemd/sysctrl and the content of
the involved saned.socket definitions.

Kind regards,

Hi it's me again.  Don't know if you gave up on me but I am trying again
from the beginning.  I have scanned via USB and now am attempting to get it
working over my wifi.

On step two it says:
Step 2: Tell SANE to run as a server (saned)

systemd only


   Execute at a terminal:

   sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/saned.socket

   and input exactly:

   # Defaults for the saned initscript, from sane-utils# To enable
under systemd please read README.Debian# Set to yes to start saned
under SysVRUN=no# Set to the user saned should run
asRUN_AS_USER=sanedmoniker at pc:~$ cat
/etc/systemd/system/saned.socket[Unit]Description=saned incoming

but when I opened up this terminal there was



and I pasted your instructions in between those lines not knowing if I was
supposed to or paste over them both.  Was I right?

And then down to step three:

Step 3: Tell saned who to share with

Assuming you don't need to control access to the scanner, we will add the
line "" (share with everyone on the local network) after "##
Access list":

## Access list192.168.0.0/24

I did this part but you explained in the beginning we were assuming that my
network address is  I don't know if this is the case or if I
need to worry about it.  Do I or is this a default network address?  Could
this be why I'm having problems?

Then I went to step 4 "clean up tasks:".  Maybe I went too far but I did it
anyway and got this:

ben at Hal:~$ sudo systemctl enable saned.socket
Failed to execute operation: Invalid argument
ben at Hal:~$ sudo systemctl start saned.socket
Failed to start saned.socket: Unit saned.socket is not loaded properly:
Invalid argument.
See system logs and 'systemctl status saned.socket' for details.

Well I think I've gone far enough and will wait for your instruction.
Would love to get this scanner wireless.
