Hi all, 

i'm trying configure the Pixma MX375 scanner on gentoo, i followed steps done by Daniel on a previous post (here: http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/sane-devel/2012-August/030229.html) 

I installed sane-backends 1.0.23 with (compiled with  sane_backends_pixma use flag enabled) and activated debug mode. 

Then sane-find-scanner seems to find the scanner:
  # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
  # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1759 [MX370 series]) at libusb:002:005
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports

But any other command that try to access the scanner receive the following error: 

root ~#scanimage > test.pnm
scanimage: open of device pixma:04A91759_72024A failed: Operation not supported

Any idea?
