# Ubuntu – Scanning from feeder, only the first page is scanned

canonkdescannersimplescanxsane

I have Canon MF237 printer/scanner. My OS is ubuntu kde.

When I try to scan with simple-scan/xsane/gscan2pdf with the feeder, the feeder goes through all the pages and loops through all of them but the scanning app shows only the first page.

This also happened on my previous samsung printer.

Is this a known problem for multi-page feeder scanning in current software/drivers? Has anybody encountered this problem and was able to fix it?

I have tried using cli scanimage. This happens also there but with slight more insight. There is seems to be some cancelation on the second page scanning?

scanimage --source "Automatic Document Feeder" --format tiff
--batch=\$(date +%Y%m%d_%H%M%S)_p%04d.tiff  --resolution 150

Scanning infinity pages, incrementing by 1, numbering from 1
