Question scanner driver for Canon MP830???


I've recently set up a Samba server for our home network under Ubuntu. I'm managing the printer through Samba/CUPS. Print functions work well but we're unable to use the MP830's scanner capabilities. Can anyone suggest a scanner driver for the MP830 that is compatible with Linux/Samba/CUPS.

According to this http://www.sane-project.org/sane-mfgs.html#Z-CANON your device is completely supported by the pixma (0.16.1) sane backend. See 'man sane-pixma' for further information.

Cool thanks

Thanks AllenD for pointing me to the SANE driver for the MP830. I'll get a copy and install it.
