Perhaps it was I who misunderstood.

I did this meticulously. And I feel that I am closer than
I was. Whoever wrote up this doc did a good job.
I'll give some results of my step-by-step progress through
the instructions. I got the
and did the standard ./confifure, make, and make install.
The ldconfig results told me that there were some libs I'd
never heard of which couldn't be found . . .
But I now have libsane.so.1.0.24 and libsane.so.1.0.25
in /usr/local/lib/ .
In 3.2 the ln instruction creates a broken symlink. I
suspect that the instruction is wrong?
Cutting to the chase, scanimage -L yields
device `pixma:04A92774_0147O24E997F' is a CANON Canon i-SENSYS
MF4700 Series multi-function peripheral
! ! Of course this cheered me mightily<g>.
But when I run scanimage > test.pnm, I get, after a long
wait, during which time my USB splitter lights blink wildly,
scanimage: sane_read: Device busy ? ! ? !
This even when I press the "Scan" button on my Canon machine.
And I get a file test.pnd which reads as follows:
# SANE data follows
So I am clearly closer, but not there yet. I hope that
this process converges
without any too many further iterations.
Again, thanks. I hope that there is a member on this E-list who
is familiar with Canon three-in-one machines who can give me a tip.

order to avoid the calamity of being ignorant of every thing.
