first of all thanks for a great piece of software.

Sorry for posting this additionally to the mailinglist (i posted the
same before in irc but it seems that this will take a longer time and
i've no bnc there - and don't want to miss some answers)

I recently tried to use the newest sane versions from git after i
realized that the adf empty bug should be fixed using Rolf Bench's ppa
which was working very good on an xubuntu trusty.

After that i wanted to use the same on my cubietruck debian jessy armhf
host... so i had to compile it myself no problem done and with

scanimage -vL

-> my scanner was found...

but scanimage -T failed with:

"open of device pixma:MX870_mx870 failed: Operation was cancelled"

After a lot of tests (created a new trusty vm and compiled sane manually
as well to see whether it works there and it worked as expected,
different recompiles on cubietruck but nothing works) i've found a
possibility to give out some debug informations - output here:


The configuration of the compilation is here:

Output of scanimage -V : scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.25git; backend
version 1.0.25

The uname of the kernel:

Linux myhostname 3.16.0-4-armmp-lpae #1 SMP Debian 3.16.7-ckt9-3~deb8u1
(2015-04-24) armv7l GNU/Linux

Git-Version of sane:


Does anyone have any ideas?
