Hi Erwin,

You can find the Canon PIXMA MG5600 Series scanner here:
http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sane-backends-cvs.html#S-PIXMA .

As you can see, for this scanner you must install SANE development (git)
version. Please follow the installation description in README.linux:
http://www.sane-project.org/docs.html .

This scanner should run for up to 600dpi scans out of the box. I suppose
that we need to fix 1200dpi scans. This isn't a big deal. Before I want
to write some patches, please report your scan results first.

I hope this helps.
