Canon Pixma MP237
X Sane 0.998
Simple Scan 3.12.1
I just purchased this unit. The problem is that XSane will not
find/detect the scanner ("no devices available").
I have XSane v0.998 installed. I can utilize the scanner using Gimp. I
have manually installed the printer and
scanner drivers and installed "libtiff4". I cannot utilize the install
CD that came with the unit as it is for Windows
and Mac. This unit is connected via USB.
Gimp has an option available to run/launch the scanner when clicked on
... (File > Create > Scangear MP...) .
When I run "lsusb" in the Terminal I get a response that indicates the
Canon "unit" is plugged in and available.
When I try to run XSane I get the "no devices available" response.
Note: I get this same response/error notice when using "Simple Scan" also.
I can print and copy ... no problem (so far).
I need to know how to get the scanner detected by XSane and Simple Scan.
Please assist and advise me if there is anything more needed.
