That is the link I would have recommended ! (and sorry for the
approximative English I use, hope you got through it easily !)

Good news !

That's a very odd behavior, first Pixma that I hear to require this.
No need to do that with the Windows driver ?

Yes, as you describe it, you need to have some action on the scanner
itself, so useless here, but very useful for many other Pixma devices,
which do not require this particular manual handling.

Wondering whether this could be linked to the special handling you're
describing above. You say that you are selecting "usb scanning". So is
there a way to select also "network scanning" ?
