Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Hi. I've been trying to set up scanner Canon Lide 110, so far unsuccessfully (even after reading some posts, which got me rather confused...)
The scanner is listed among supported devices on the SANE website. Moreover, back then I managed to get the scanner working with Ubuntu, but cannot remember how I did it ever since (I'm quite sure I forget to do something essential). Now I use CrunchBang.
I'm not quite sure what all information I should post, but I guess this would be it for the beginning...:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9, product=0x1909, chip=GL848+?) at libusb:002:006
No scanners were identified. (...)
Bus 002 Device 006: ID 04a9:1909 Canon, Inc. CanoScan LiDE 110
(Did the same as root, the results were the same.)
Location: Somewhere inside 9.9 million sq. km. Canada
Distribution: Slackware 14.1, 14.2
Two things to look at.
1. With the scanner turned on, and plugged into a usb port, have a look at the /dev directory to see if the device shows up there. I have a HP scanner that uses the genesys backend, the same backend that supports your Canon scanner. On my system I see this:
crw-rw-r-- 1 root scanner 189, 3 Jun 3 09:22 usbdev1.4
If the device is not showing up, in the /dev directory, it will not work.
2. Have a look at the file /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf file, look to see if your scanner is uncommented. It should look like this:
1) The device doesn't show up in there. (Even after following.) 2) Well, the scanner wasn't even listed.
Thus I figured I hadn't even the sane-backends installed ^^; (I somehow expected it would do so, er, itself.) // Following these instructions... http://mp610.blogspot.cz/2008/04/giv...shly-sane.html
Had to install libusb-dev as well.
Also had to add myself in the "scanner" group.
usermod -G scanner username
... copied this file, because the scanner wasn't listed:
I see. Anyway, on my other laptop with Ubuntu the scanner works without a flaw. Now I even installed newer sane-backend and reinstalled everything else, but still no luck.
Oh, and the scanner still doesn't show up in the /dev directory.
One more question - by what is it probably caused? Is there some other way I could get the scanner to work? I'm considering purchasing another scanner if the situation won't change.

I have a canon Pixma 240 & although they used to support linux they never updated their printer drivers for linux. So I gave up on trying to install them & just use my hp printer which was plug & play in Debian.
