Hi Charles,

First you need to install a recent copy of SANE. You can find a
step-by-step install description in README.linux:

In (3.) you can reduce compiling time with: 'BACKENDS="pixma" ./configure'.

If you like to use a gui, you can install and use xsane.

Then start with test scans. I guess that your scanner should scan all
resolutions up to 600dpi out of the box with the recent copy of SANE.
1200dpi scans might be buggy.
