Hi Art,

For your scanner you need to use SANE's Development (git) Version:

The ADF is buggy. If you still want to test your device, please install
SANE 1.0.25git as described in README.linux:

For debugging, please disable WiFi and disconnect Ethernet from your
device, use USB only!!!

If you start the frontend on a terminal, you can enable debug messages
with SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=n. Please read 'man sane-pixma' for details.

If you can reproduce any problems, please send me your log files.
