    Canon LIDE 100 scanner

    I just bought a Canon LiDE 100 scanner.

    Cheap USB scanner. Pretty good quality. Bus powered

    lsusb shows the following
    Bus 007 Device 007: ID 04a9:1904 Canon, Inc.


    However xsane doesn't detect it. Any suggestions?

    Re: Canon LIDE 100 scanner

    I had the Lide 200 USB... I am pretty experienced in Linux and Ubuntu - but there is really nothing I could do to get the 200 to work. Ended up putting it on a Windows box (the only one I have left in the house).

    Good scanner overall - cannon is not real good when it comes to Linux support...

    Re: Canon LIDE 100 scanner

    anyone got any clue about this? there's got to b a way for this scanner to work

    i get this output when running san-find-scanner

    Code:
      # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
      # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
      # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
    
      # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
      # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
    
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9, product=0x1904, chip=GL843?) at libusb:007:002
      # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
      # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
    
      # Not checking for parallel port scanners.
    
      # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
      # can't be detected by this program.
    but scanimage -L generates the following


    Code:
    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
    check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
    sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
    which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
    any tips? suggestions?
    mount and do not unmount

    I would love to hear any ideas or suggestions as well- I'm having the same problem with a LIDE 200. It looks like both the 100 and 200 aren't even listed on the SANE site at all..

    I was thinking about purchasing the 200 and would also like to see if there are any ways to get it working.

    Go to the SANE project site's list of supported scanners, http://www.sane-project.org/cgi-bin/driver.pl, and see if yours is listed. If so, download the driver (as a .deb) install it and see if that helps. it's how I got an Epson CX7450 to scan.

    Any advice in this post is worth exactly what you paid for it.
    Remember, folks, I don't use Ubuntu, I just support it.

    Re: Canon LIDE 100 scanner

    Guys, have you tried to use the driver of similiar Canon scanner? This method often goes succesful.

    Here we have close number models, like LIDE 90, 80, and so on:

    http://www.sane-project.org/cgi-bin/...&bus=usb&v=&p=

    You know, they put new models every month to keep up selling, but it might only be the different outside of the same sh.t.
    I do care, 'coz i'm interested in buying LIDE 100.

    An excellent suggestion. Right now, both CUPS and xsane think my CX7450 all-in-one is a CX7400. Who cares, as long as it works? Try the model numbers closest to yours, and see if one works. You've got nothing to lose except a little time because the worst thing that can happen is, quite literally, nothing.

    Unfortunately not, and it's unlikely anyone will find a solution anytime soon due to the fact that Canon considers the information needed to produce drivers classified, and by explicitly not supporting Linux.

    Just checked with Canon support since a LiDE 200 would be nice for my needs, but obviously Canon wants to stay on my boycott list.

    Re: Canon LIDE 100 scanner

    I purchased this as a gift last Christmas because I had so much success with a previous Lide and Linux. Oh well. Anyone know another good sub $100 scanner that *does* support Ubuntu?
