There is always a chance! ;-) Please try to save subscribers time and
provide URLs to the scanners description page! In this case it is .
And there is even a dedicated Web page for that device. Searching
through the supported scanners list , you find that page .

Well it depends on the Ubuntu release and if Canonical or the package
maintainers backport support for new devices.
As you use Ubuntu please report a bug to their Launchpad bug tracker 
so that they become aware of the missing device support.
Also you should contact Canon and asked them for Linux support.

What about more current Microsoft Windows versions? What driver version
and program do you use under Microsoft Windows XP?

Please compare the information on the SANE Web page for Canon LiDE 80
 with the device you have. Just to be sure.

As the Web page says, the device is unsupported. I do not know if
somebody is working on the SANE Genesys currently as I just looked into
Besides the actions above, you can read the Contribute Web page  for
further information on what to do.

You could also try running Microsoft Windows in some virtualization
software like KVM, XEN, ….
Thanks and sorry for not giving you better news,
