please try this:
(1) export SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=4
(2) scanimage --button-controlled=yes > text.pnm
If nothing happens after pressing 'SCAN' or 'COLOR' button, please try
again with 'export SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=11' and send the output to me.
This normally scans one page button controlled. For multiple pages
scanimage and xsane can scan in 'batch mode'. Please read the man pages
I prefer 'scanbd' for button controlled scanning.
