please do not be too unkind with me, if I ask a dumb question.
My new Canon Pixma Scanner 5751 does not work with the scanner programs
like simple-scan on my Ubuntu Linux.
I turned on debugging and found many lines like this:
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of pixma to 21.
[pixma] pixma is compiled with pthread support.
[pixma] pixma version 0.17.18
[pixma] Scanner model MP150(Canon PIXMA MP150) not found, giving up!
[pixma] Scanner model MP170(Canon PIXMA MP170) not found, giving up!
I downloaded the latest sane backend: sane-backends-e3ed043
In the code I found, that MG5700 is listed.
Is there any way to install the update, or do I need to compile from
source? (Did not do that for a long time!)
