Supposing it was the scanner (almost 5 years old), I bought a brand new
CanoScan LIDE 25. It seems to be seen by `sane-find scanner', in fact:

 # sane-find-scanner


 found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x2220 [CanoScan], chip=LM9832/3) at libusb:001:003

. At http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-CANON 
it is said that the device is supported by the plustek backend.
Please can anyone suggest where I can find it and how I can install it?
