I took a hiatus in my search to make my Canon scanner work, but
I'm now back to the fray.

I have followed the kind directions given me, I hope
correctly. Namely, I downloaded the file
unpacked it, and ran the standard ./configure, make,
and make install sequence. All seemed to work well
I now have in my /usr/local/ directory a new sane
package. In particular I have in /usr/local/lib files
libsane.so and libsane.so.1 , both of which point
to libsane.so.1.0.25(a file with 432166 bytes). I assume
this means I have a new libsane with an up-to-date frontend.
Re backend: I can't see where any new backends have been
installed. I have found on the web a colloquy between
Rolph Bensch and Ralph Little, who has exactly the same
Canon MF4770n that I do, and has succeeded in making it
work . . .
But my 'scanimage -i' still reports 'No SANE devices found'.
I must do something further, I presume. But what?
TIA for anticipated assistance!

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.
If it can't be abused, it's not freedom.
