Hello Peter,
I think the best you could do is download a CVS version of SANE,
compile it, and run the sane-find-scanner -v -v command to detect a
scanner: the CVS version of SANE includes much new code that will
detect more of the Genesys chips. I do not think the scanner will use
a pixma protocol if it uses one of those chips.
