[sane-devel] Help with a genesys scanner

Hi, I recently purchased a Canon LiDE 1100 scanner. According to
http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sane-mfgs-cvs.html#Z-CANON the
status for this scanner is "Complete" and uses the genesys backend

I compiled sane-backends-1.0.22 followed by sane-frontends-1.0.14 from
source successfully. When I run sane-find-scanner I get this message:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1909 [CanoScan],
chip=GL124) at libusb:002:003
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

However, when I try scanimage, xscanimage, xcam, scanadf, none of
these front ends detect the scanner, even when I run them as root.

I'm running 2.6.31-17-generic #54-Ubuntu SMP x86_64 GNU/Linux

Does anyone have any ideas to get this scanner to work?
