None. I looked at the SANE support/unsupport pages to see what they
use (http://www.sane-project.org/unsupported/) . As I said, I am
looking for sniffs only of the specified 4 scanners, in order to
determine if they use a pixma protocol. If you have a 90 or 100 I
suggest you first check the SANE pages for what they say about those
scanners, and if nothing there then open up the scanners if you feel
confident enough, and take a look at the chips, specifying the
information. Chances are the 100 is also a Genesys user.
