No, you need the new pixma_mp150.c file from me and compile SANE
yourself from CVS with my file replacing the CVS one. If you prefer to
wait some weeks, you will have the 9000F support also in CVS. I'm
trying my best to complete the support but even without 9600dpi
support it will be eminently usable (up to 4800dpi works flawlessly).

I found:
And under the "requires" I clicked on sane-backends and found a rpm
for OpenSuSE on that page.
