Drivers for Scanner BenQ 4300U using Linux

I was using this scanner under MS office but now we have Linux and have downloaded BenQ 4300U.exe but under Linux it is not working. It needs a .pdd extension file. What should I do?

It depends on what linux distribution your are using. I run SuSe 10.3 and there is a solution for that, but it's in Spanish. Link to and while in there, look for a link that says "aqui", click there and a pdf document will appear explaining how to install the firmware. It worked for me just fine! Remember, in Linux, the scanner program is called "sane" or "xsane", there is no "Mirascan" or "scan button".

I want to use my old Benq s2w 4300u scan to web in my macbook pro. What to do?


1) Baje los drivers del scanner desde este sitio (ftp):

2) Después de hacer el download y poner los drivers en una carpeta ya descompactados, pues debe dar click derecho sobre SETUP.EXE y en el tab COMPATIBILIDAD marque compatibilidad con WindowsXP - SP3, y también marque ejecutar como administrador. Esta instalación es la única que he encontrado OK.

3) La instalación habilita un nuevo programa denominado MIRASCAN.EXE, no lo ejecute pues le va a decir que no hay SCANNER conectado y demás. Observe que en el administrador de dispositivos le aparecerá el SCANNER como un periférico correctamente conectado, y esto es lo principal, pues indica que el sistema lo ha reconocido correctamente.

4) Para scannear cualquier imagen Ud. debe ejecutar la tarea "Fax y Scanner de Windows", que es nativa al Windows7, y se sorprenderá cuando vea que con la misma si que puede scannear cualquier cosa y guardarla como .JPG o con el formato que desee.

5) Gracias a todas las personas que pusieron el driver correcto en este sitio.

Buen Provecho
