Question Slackware 14.1 Canon MP-495 Multi-function Printer Setup Issues

I just finished upgrading to Slackware64 14.1 from 13.37. One thing I noticed was that scanner quit working after the upgrade. When running "scangearmp" from the terminal, I get the following error:

scangearmp: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Anyone run into this issue? I've done some searing on LQ, but haven't found a good solution yet. I am wondering if it is related to multilib. That is one thing I haven't upgraded since switching to 14.1. I'll probably give that a shot tomorrow.

Thanks for the help willysr! I installed the pangox-compat SlackBuild and my scanner works again.

Just as a note for anyone who needs to do this in the future, the SlackBuild script link is broken on the SlackBuilds site. They have it linked under 14.0/System when it should be 14.0/Libraries. Here is a link to the FTP tarball with the entire SlackBuild in it. Just remember to download the source file as it's not included.

I'll report the broken link to SlackBuilds, hopefully they will fix it.
