I'm using a raspberry pi (Jessie) and i use it to share my printers (one
Samsung and one Canon MG5750) other my network thru cups.

I would like also to share the scanner of my Canon MG5750 other my network.

First of all i would like to to make the scanner work out right on the


1) I've connected the pi and the canon with a usb wire.

2) I've upgraded the distribution on the rapsberry and then installed

Description: API library for scanners -- utilities
 SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application
 programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any
 raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, hand-held scanner,
 video- and still-cameras, frame-grabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is
 free and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The
 current source code is written to support several operating systems,
 including GNU/Linux, OS/2, Win32 and various Unices and is available
 under the GNU General Public License (commercial applications and
 backends are welcome, too, however).
 This package includes the command line frontend scanimage, the saned
 server and the sane-find-scanner utility, along with their documentation.

When i do "sudo scanimage -L" i get :

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

Then i do "sudo sane-find-scanner" and i get :

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
  # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
  # Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating system.
  # If using Linux, try "modprobe sg".

When i do "lsusb" i get :

Is the scanner of the MG5750 supported by sane on a raspberry pi ?

Do i have to installed something else to make it work out right ?

Thank You for your help.

Regards, Bart.
