[sane-devel] Fail to build sane-backends ( PIXMA 3100 Series )

Hi, thanks, I believe I have (finally) successfully built and installed
However, I'm still unable to get xsane / scanimage to identify my scanner.

It is a Canon PIXMA 3100 series. It is available by wireless or by USB.

sane-find-scanners detects the PIXMA by USB, but not by wifi: scanimage -L
does not detect the scanner at all.

Where to proceed from here?

*Output from both commands:*
 $ sane-find-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
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1752 [MG3100 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
  # can't be detected by this program.

  # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
  # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
  # necessary.

 $ scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
