Hi and welcome to LQ. Please note that it's an English-speaking forum.

Please continue writing in English - It does not matter if your English skills are not perfect.

Can you provide the model of your printer, the exact steps that you took, and any error messages?

There seems to be a French-speaking Ubuntu forum:
http://forum.ubuntu-fr.org/

Which version of Ubuntu are you using?

I guess 'imprimante' means a 'printer'

So the printer is ok, but the scanner is not recognised by the system, right?

Have a look at this:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/18260...not-recognized

It seems like you have to install a driver from Canon's website.

Ok. No problem. Hopefully, you'll solve your problem there.

Once you have found a solution, please post it here as well to help other people that might have a similar problem.

Good Luck!!!
