I just bought a canon MP280, multifunctional device and I would like to be
able to use the scanning function on my linux machine. I tried  adding the
scanner details to the the pixma_mp150.c file like this, but with no

/* Generation 4 */
#define MP250_PID 0x173a
#define MP270_PID 0x173b
*#define MP280_PID 0x1746*
#define MP490_PID 0x173c
#define MP550_PID 0x173d
#define MP560_PID 0x173e
#define MP640_PID 0x173f
#define MP990_PID 0x1740


  /* Generation 4: CIS */
  DEVICE ("Canon PIXMA MP640", "MP640", MP640_PID, 4800, 638, 877,
  DEVICE ("Canon PIXMA MP560", "MP560", MP560_PID, 2400, 638, 877,
  DEVICE ("Canon PIXMA MP550", "MP550", MP550_PID, 2400, 638, 877,
  DEVICE ("Canon PIXMA MP490", "MP490", MP490_PID, 1200, 638, 877,
  DEVICE ("Canon PIXMA MP250", "MP250", MP250_PID, 600, 638, 877,
  DEVICE ("Canon PIXMA MP270", "MP270", MP270_PID, 1200, 638, 877,
*  DEVICE ("Canon PIXMA MP280", "MP280", MP280_PID, 1200, 638, 877,

Then I managed to successfully compile the sane-backends.
But when I try to scan something, nothing happens:
[~] # scanimage -L
device `pixma:04A91746_01760E' is a CANON Canon PIXMA MP280 multi-function
[~] # scanimage -T
scanimage: scanning image of size 638x877 pixels at 24 bits/pixel
scanimage: acquiring RGB frame, 8 bits/sample
scanimage: reading one scanline, 1914 bytes...
And it stays like for as long as I leave it, the multifunctional doesn't
make any sounds like it would start scanning or anything like that. So
eventually I have to kill the process.

I am attaching the output of the sane-scanner-find tool maybe someone can
help me get this working.
