Installation of Canon LiDe210 scanner

Additional Information on Installation of Canon LiDE 210 in Linux

As a newbie to LinuxQuestions I wish to thank your organization for the info for trying the site on!!! This referred us to Alioth:Sane where sane-backend-1.0.22.tar.gz was downloaded and extracted in .../Downloads.

The "backend" file of Downloads was selected and opened. In the backend file was a file, "genesys.config in" which listed the Canon LiDE 210 as being covered.

We must now configure, make, and make-install the sane-backends-1.0.22 file. In appreciation we respectfully request any special instructions from Linux Questions that members of LQ may have.

Are you absolutely sure you have to compile from source? What distro do you use, and doesn't your distro come with a package for Sane? Isn't it recent enough? AFAIK the LiDE is supported for over a year.
