Canon MP210

Hi all!!!
I am starter user of linux ubuntu. I've got Canon MP210 printer+Scanner+coppier. I've already found the printer driver from linux database and it works ok - My Canon is printing, bat the scanner does not work.

I have just updated the Xsane Image Scaner database and then I deleted the # symbols in the configuration file. after that the Xsane Image scanner could find devices, bat this devices are not MP210. they are: noname
fronted-tester virtual device [test:0]
and noname
fronted-tester virtual device [test:1]

what can I do more...?

I,ve just solved the problem.

I had installed only scangearmp-common_1.10-1_i386.deb, but I had to install also scangearmp-mp210series_1.10-1_i386.deb

now program "scangearmp" works fine on my computer. But I don't like it. I Like Image Scanner programs, such as "Xsane Image scanner", "kooka" and etc.but the new problem I have, is that neither of this programs can find the device. what to do to find the device in this programs?
