Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

I've checked it, and it's right. Scanner works perfectly with other laptops with USB 2.0 ports. I have only 3.0 and eSATA in mine, and don't use any hubs.
Good to know that we're on the right track here.

What's interesting it uses xhci_hcd and it still claims it's just a full-speed USB.
Yeah, the attached peripheral determines that, and a companion controller (EHCI or UHCI) then handles the connectivity. However, it is clear that this is not being handled correctly. If xhci_hcd is loaded as a module (rather than being compiled into the kernel), then it would be possible to blacklist it, so that the controller only functions as an EHCI (USB 2.0 interface with ehci_hcd). I am intrigued that it only detects 'full speed' capability, normally associated with USB 1.0 devices. However, I'm at the limits of my knowledge with this.

Rmmoding xhci_hcd leaves me with no functional USB ports, and booting with it blacklisted doesn't make ehci_hcd take care of them. Is that unusual?

That's amazing news! DuskGlow!

I'm not sure on that but I'll try to find out-

Found this to be the case for this man who has Arch-

Quote:
The usb device only mounts after I do a rmmod ehci_hcd and a modprobe ehci_hcd, but when I restart my computer, the problem comes back.
https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=11407

And here is a similar situation but with a media player instead of a printer/scanner.
https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ux/+bug/216150

Sorry DuskGlow that's all I could find.

Unfortunately, running 'lspci' like you did doesn't demonstrate anything, except that your USB controllers are reported as expected
Code:
0b:00.0 USB controller: Texas Instruments TUSB73x0 SuperSpeed USB 3.0 xHCI Host Controller (rev 02)
Code:
00:1a.0 USB controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family USB Enhanced Host Controller #2 (rev 05)
The first entry relates to your XHCI controller, and the second is the companion controller (for dealing with full/high speed USB hardware)

You need to run something like
Code:
lspci -vvv
to see the loaded modules associated with various hardware components. Then dmesg should tell you what is occurring when you attach a USB peripheral
Code:
dmesg|tail
I would suggest that you submit a bug report for your distribution describing this issue.

As a workaround, you may find that you can disable the USB 3.0 functionality via your BIOS. This would cause the USB ports to function as USB 2.0 controllers. (Make sure you only use USB 2.0 cables, and that they're not too long.)

I don't have any option to turn USB 3.0 into 2.0 in my BIOS - only to turn it off completely.

Hovewer, I managed to plug the printer into eSATA port (which I've done before):

At war with your Motherboard; Mate...I'm sorry-

I'm not the best with that but (not sure how to diagnose) if you have to you could purchase a new one.

Some of the leading ones are Asus the M series, MSI, and Gigabyte.

Depending on what you want I suppose it could get expensive-

http://us.msi.com/

As you know I made an additional thread in the "General" forum to have other members help out with your predicament and I'd like to write a tutorial/article (unless already created) would you mind if I organise a solved review with strategies from your thread?

Yes, this is exactly this Dell. I modified it by putting SSD instead of HDD (required awful lot of unscrewing, but damn worth it!), it has i5 processor and Nvidia (Optimus) card - but it's the same model as in http://www.cnet.com/laptops/dell-ins...-35127205.html .

I can see no point in switching the motherboard, I'll just have to live without my scanner...

As to organizing this thread, I'd love to help, just tell me what's needed. I could copy the info to Debian, Arch and Ubuntu wikis, too.

Additional idea: maybe eSATA port doesn't work (even though it's handled by ehci) because it's eSATA? Can I just force USB3.0 to work as 2.0 inside Linux?

I'm out of ideas for the scanner sorry-

What would be needed is all of the websites/links to the correct drivers for Brother printers to aid other members. Websites for Sane and XSane (that explained detailed info) and How To install. Also, a list of commands in order in which you tried that worked. Also; those arguments that were copied and pasted into the library (for functionality/performace/recognition) for the lib to have what it needs to aid the printer. Than; putting it all together knowing that it will work for other members is the key. In this case we would have to indubitably cross all of our t's and dot all of the i's. We must also think like a newbie because this could be frustrating to one without Linux experience. This would have to be approved by "Jeremy" 'Our Founder and Owner'
I've never written an article but I think this is our chance to do it...You agree?

As to the can you just force the USB 3.0....
I think because of the law of (interchangeability of 1.0/2.0) it wouldn't function-
May even cause a freeze to the system but I'm not a hardware Engineer and I (think) it wouldn't work.
I have a usb that causes a freeze everytime I use the darn thing; it's useless!

To be certain I'd have to do more re-search with eSata and the ehci details/facts.

As to the commands and links, I'll gather them all in a couple of days.

The full lspci -vvv I can see as root looks like this: http://pastebin.com/ejeFSixM
