make sure that:
- /dev/sg0 is readable for the user running scanimage or another
frontend, or, for a first test, run scanimage -L as root. /dev/sg0
is the device file that will be used to access the scanner.
- /etc/sane.d/dll.conf (or /usr/local/etc/sane.d/dll.conf, if you
installed Sane directly from the sources) has a line 'canon',
without a leading '#'
- check the existence of /etc/sane.d/canon.conf resp.
The default version of canon.conf contains a line like
"/dev/scanner". I am not sure, if this is enough; you might add a
If all this does not help, run
scanimage -L 2> test.log
This will produce a (perhaps somewhat larger) file test.log that
contains much debug output. Send the file to me (may be too big for
the mailing list), and I'll see, what the cause of the problem might be.
