Network scanning with Lexmark CX410

It took me some time to get Lexmark CX410 network scanning working on my Ubuntu (16.04 LTS). Scanning programs were not able to discover the device even if the correct driver was installed. So here are some troubleshooting steps, you can try if you also experience some problems with the network scanning.

Download and install the driver

Download network scan driver for CX410 from Lexmark support page

install it:
sudo dpkg -i lexmark_network-scan-linux-glibc2_12212015_x86_64.deb

And now add the secret ingredient. Link the installed drivers to a proper location:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lexmark/unix_scan_drivers/lib/sane /usr/lib/sane

Installation verification

$ scanimage -L
