I bought the Canon LiDE 220, it is documented that it is fully supported by 
the genesys backend:


All the following steps I did as root to get around access right problems.

lsusb gives me VID / PID as 0x04A9 / 0x190F,
so i added one line to /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf:

usb 0x04a9 0x190f

sane-find-scanner gives me (full output):
  # 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.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x190f [CanoScan],

  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported 
  # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
  # can't be detected by this program.

So the scanner is found.

But scanimage -L gives me:
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).

I use OpenSuse 42.2, the installed versions are (only the relevant lines):
rpm -qa | grep sane


I wonder what I need to do to get the LiDE 220 working.

Thanks for any hints,
