Hi rolf, 

i lookedd at README.linux, but i cannot find where it can help me. 
1. i installed it using gentoo package manager
2. the scanner is recognized by sane, but i get the error:
          scanimage: open of device pixma:04A91759_72024A failed: Operation not supported
3. The usb flag is set for sane package. 

Or maybe i missed the point with the solution in README.linux? 

Any other idea?
