I have been unable to get my Canon 700f to work with Ubuntu 12.04. I've
tried all the tricks and tips I could find with no success. As far as I
can tell I'm running all the latest and greatest. I found where Matus
Sabo requested assistance and I'll include your exchange below. His
description is exactly what I'm seeing. Xsane fails with "Invalid
Argument" as well as scanimage -T. sane-find-scanner finds the scanner
as well as scanimage -L. The device is in the rules file and I can see
it as root or user. I just cant scan. When I get the "invalid argument"
the device number is deleted and shows up again with the next sequential
number. System log only shows that a new device was found. I'd really
like to get this working as I love Gimp but the Windows version crashes
regularly but the Ubuntu version can't use the scanner. Help!!

something didn't work like you expected. There is no 'WARNING' in
current git source tree. You can check it by setting debug before
running the same commands with:
The debug messages should report a '1.0 build 2302' version if latest
version is ran.
Since SANE 1.0.23 is about to be released, I think PPA for this release
will be available soon. It may be a matter of a week or two.
Meanwhile, you could check the libsane-genesys.so.1.0.23 library is
present in /usr/lib/sane or in /usr/lib64/sane (on 64bits systems). Also
check that you don't have both subdirectories.
