SANE front/back ends: Canon Canoscan LiDE 400


My Epson scanner died and I replaced it with a Canon Canoscan LiDE 400 because the SANE supported devices page says it's completely supported and uses the pixma backend. The SBo pixma and cnjifilter2 packages do not support his printer.

I downloaded and built Canon's source code for this model but it's a stand-alone program, not a loadable module that xsane can use. I'm waiting for someone on the sane-devel mail list to respond to my post. In the meantime I would like suggestions for installing a driver that can be seen by xsane.

I have a Canoscan Lide 25 and it runs on the plustek driver which is part of sane. I have the /etc/sane.d/plustek.conf set to autoscan for usb and it just picks it up.

These old unit "plug and play" reports probably are not helping much (I was watching the SBo list via my eMail), but my LiDE 30 works without extra drivers. I am also using simple-scan.

Isn't the pixma included in SANE?
usr/lib64/sane/libsane-pixma.la
usr/lib64/sane/libsane-pixma.so.1.0.25

etc/sane.d/pixma.conf.new

The above is taken from SANE version 1.0.25 for Slackware 14.2 (sane-1.0.25-x86_64-2.txz)

For current:
version 1.0.28 (sane-1.0.28-x86_64-1.txz)
etc/sane.d/pixma.conf.new
usr/lib64/sane/libsane-pixma.la
usr/lib64/sane/libsane-pixma.so.1.0.28

Canon LiDE 220 is flawless on sane 1.027. Uses the genesys backend.

Hi rshepard.
For the Canon CanoScan LiDE 400 need to install ScanGear MP look at this

You can try latest packages:
sane-1.0.28-x86_64-1.txz
xsane-0.999-x86_64-2.txz
scangearmp2-3.90-x86_64-1bl.txz (my build)

Run as root this command
Code:
sed -i '/canon_dr/a\canon_pixma' /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
# or this command
echo "canon_pixma"  >> /etc/sane.d/dll.conf # for activate the backend in sane
# look at https://github.com/Ordissimo/scangearmp2 (For all distributions you need to activate the backend :)
Try to scan.

That is if OP is running current only.

It's time for current. Slackware 14.2 is old.

Rich,

You may have already seen the comment on sane's email list that LiDE 400 support was added in their release 1.0.28 (https://alioth-lists.debian.net/pipe...ry/037453.html).

That explains why your LiDE 400 isn't recognised since 14.2 has only release 1.0.25. The good news is that 1.0.28 is the release being used in -current. I don't recommend using the supplied 1.0.28 package directly in 14.2 since there may be some runtime problems linking with libraries available in -current but not in 14.2. However you can just recompile -current's 1.0.28 SlackBuild in 14.2 (it works - I just tried it) and then upgradepkg to the resulting package (by default, it'll be left in /tmp).

chris
