I have a fresh install of elementary os 5.1 hera. The only thing I am stuck with is trying to get this os to work with my Samsung C480W printer + scanner. The printer works fine but the scanner simply won't connect over a LAN. I have already installed the recommended samsung uld driver and created the required soft links for libsane.so. The same scanner works fine with a laptop running linux mint 19.2 (also based on Ubuntu 18.04 and having the same uld drivers). The only errors I can see are in /var/log/syslog which seem to suggest the scanner details cannot be found in a file called models.dat.
Has anybody faced and solved a similar problem on elementary? Any help in getting this to work will be quite appreciated.
