hi Lovro
I guess that Rolf Bensch, the main maintainer of the pixma backend is
away. A few quick hints:
- use the latest GIT-branch of Sane or find a recent Sane package for
your distribution (if you need a package for Ubuntu, check Rolf's PPA: 
- connect the scanner using a USB cable
- test the scanner in all resolutions 
- Test color and B&W
- for a bonus: connect the scanner over the network and repeat the test
scans above
