[sane-devel] MX925: Scan via Display to SANE??

For MX920 Series scanners you need to install SANE Development Version
1.0.25 from git.

Button support is working as described in sane-pixma manpage.

Due to a problem with the webserver,
http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sane-backends-cvs.html#S-PIXMA doesn't
represent the recent  git version. But the infos for MX920 are up to date.

I'll commit a patch for ADF paper empty issue within a short time.
