[sane-devel] Problems using Canon-supplied driver for imageFORMULA P-215 (canondr)

Dear list,

Canon is supplying a sane-based driver for the mentioned scanner. The 
date on the website says July 2015. You can follow this link to the 
download page:


I had no luck installing the driver from *.deb, but I'm also running x64 
and the page says 32-bit.

When following the instructions to compile from source I managed to get 
to the point where the driver was apparently registered with sane, but 
when selecting the Canon-Driver (canondr, in contrast to included 
canon_dr), `scangui` says: "Cannot open scanner device."

`scanimage` says: "scanimage: open of device canondr:libusb:001:005 
failed: Error during device I/O"

Did anyone manage to get this driver working?

Regards, Thomas
