Thank you Rolf, Olaf & Steve!
When I got home I built Sane from
The build went successfully after a bit:
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
--sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var -- BACKENDS="pixma test"
$ sudo make install
$ sudo scanimage -V
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.28-361-g1e2f64dc; backend version 1.0.28
$ sudo scanimage -L
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the.......
$ sudo sane-find-scanner
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x27fe
[MF642C/643C/644C]) at libusb:002:005
/etc/sane.d/pixma.conf is completely commented out for now.
So find-scanner *could* see the scanner and identify the driver, but
scanimage -L could not find it.
Then I tried to use Rolf's PPA since I am running Ubuntu 18.04 (but I have
to admit I am less familiar with how to use do this)...
$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git
$ sudo apt-get update
This next command took me a while to figure out. It is probably obvious to
everyone else, but not to me.
$ sudo apt install libsane-common
$ sudo scanimage -L
device `pixma:04A927FE_f4a997c93d62' is a CANON Canon i-SENSYS MF640 Series
Thank you so much! I will start testing the various resolutions and post
