Install Driver for Trust Flat Scan USB 19200 Flatbed Scanner on Ubuntu/Debian

This is a mobile optimized version of this page, view original page.

Portable USB scanners are very useful. They’re lightweight, easy to use, they can run off the power of the USB port, and most times they work right out of the box on Linux. Most times. It’s not the case of the Trust Flat Scan USB 19200 flatbed scanner.

In fact, this scanner requires a bit of work. However, before you get scared, beware that…

Yes, you don’t need to do pretty much anything. Just fire up a terminal and paste the following command (it’s one command, just copy and paste the whole thing):

wget -O - "https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Davideddu/trust-flat-scan-usb-19200-installer/master/install.py" 2> /dev/null | sudo python

That’s it! If for some reason the previous command didn’t work for you, you can still download the script manually and run it as root with

sudo python install.py
