Cannon is very well known for NOT supporting any os other than MS Windows
if it is not on the S.A.N.E. list

it is likely not supported

use Windows to scan
buy a supported scanner

but the The PIXMA MP280 is listed a "good" for usb

you need to have SANE installed
should be by default

there should be a GUI for xsane
