[sane-devel] How to enable scanning on a Canon all-in-one printer?

I am sure that this question has a simple answer. My situation:
I bought a Canon imageCLASS MF4770n all-in-one
printer(scanner/copier/fax) on Friday. It took me a while to get
my CUPS and lpadmin commands so that it would print, but thanks
to the documentation provided by Canon to Linux users, it now
prints just fine. I would like it to scan also, and I'm having
trouble. I think my "sane back end" is not configured properly.
I have run sane-find-scanner and my result is:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon Inc], product=0x2774
[MF4700 Series]) at libusb:001:004
However, scanimage -L reports: "No scanners were identified. . . ."
So something is awry.
As confirmation, I have checked http://www.sane-project.org/ for
Supported devices and my all-in-one given above is indeed on that
I have simple-scan installed, but when run it can't find the scanner.
I am running Debian Wheezy.
Thanks in advance for anticipated assistance!
