Hello all,

is there any chance of adding Canoscan LIDE 80 to the SANE backends, so
it can be used with Ubuntu ?

This isn't a new scanner... but it would be very helpful to use it as
it's giving high quality images (under Win XP....).

lsusb says it has the ID 04a9:2214, GL842 in it (not 841). scanimage -L
and sane-find-scanner do not recognize it.

Installing Canon software under Wine / Ubuntu works, but there is no
scanner/device present to be chosen.

thank you,
