[sane-devel] How can I help with Canon Maxify MB2000 series testing?

Hi Rolf,

I tested scanimage with different options today. In particular, I tested
all the combinations of connection/resolution/color available with flatbed

 --Connection: usb/net
 --Resolution: 75/150/300/600/1200
 --Color: color/gray/lineart

...for a total of 30 tests. I can confirm that all the combinations work, I
have a folder with all the scans and a script, so I can replicate the
operation while collecting debug info by setting SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA if
necessary, and share all the results somewhere (eg. Google Drive).

But ADF _do not_ work for me using scanimage or scanadf. Here's a sample

[pixma] pixma is compiled with pthread support.
[pixma] pixma version 0.17.45
[pixma] pixma_collect_devices() found Canon MAXIFY MB2300 Series at
[pixma] Scanner model found: Name MB2300(Canon MAXIFY MB2300 Series)

[pixma] pixma_collect_devices() found Canon MAXIFY MB2300 Series at bjnp://
[pixma] pixma_open(): Canon MAXIFY MB2300 Series
[pixma] *mp150_open***** This is a generation 5 scanner.  *****

[pixma] Reader task terminated: ECANCELED
scanimage: min/max graylevel value = 255/0
scanimage: sane_read: Operation was cancelled
[pixma] pixma_close(): Canon MAXIFY MB2300 Series

Seems that pages in the ADF are not recognised: see "ADF page count=0".
