    moshman, you have to change to the directory where the downloaded package installed, then run
    ./configure
    make
    make install

    wow, it's a long time coming. I thought they forgot about it.

    I wonder how long it'll take to get into mainline Ubuntu. Hopefully, if it works well, not too long.

    I liked the scanner, it was decent hardware. Just didn't have any way to use it. Thanks for the update!

    Re: Canoscan LiDE 200

    The latest version of xsane installed without any problems or error messages, but the LiDE 200 is not seen.

    It is showing up as connected if I run lsusb, but xsane does not recognize it. Any thoughts?

    Output of lsusb:
    Code:
    :~$ lsusb
    Bus 003 Device 003: ID 03f0:0d17 Hewlett-Packard LaserJet 1012
    Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c00e Logitech, Inc. M-BJ58/M-BJ69 Optical Wheel Mouse

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
    Output of scanimage -V
    Code:
    :~$ scanimage -V
    scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.22git; backend version 1.0.22
    So it looks like I have the latest and greatest version of the sane-backends, but no joy.

    Re: Canoscan LiDE 200

    here is the solution (slightly modified for the LiDE 200 model), tested and working in Karmic:

    1) You need some usb libraries, so, in a terminal type:

    sudo apt-get install libusb-dev build-essential libsane-dev

    2) To get the sane backends from git you need git-core. If you don't already have it, type this (also in a terminal):

    sudo apt-get install git-core

    3) Now use the git that was just installed to get the sane backends using the following command:

    git clone git://git.debian.org/sane/sane-backends.git

    That downloads the backends and puts them in a folder called sane-backends in your home folder.

    4) Change directory into the new sane-backends folder and compile them:

    cd sane-backends

    ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var

    make <--- this one takes a while

    sudo make install

    Now everything is installed, but you still won't be able to scan (except as root) until you set up some permissions.

    5) You need to edit a file, but you need to be root to edit it, so:

    sudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules

    and add the following 2 lines:

    # Canon CanoScan Lide 200
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04a9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1905", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

    save the file, exit gedit, exit terminal, reboot, and...

    SCAN AWAY!
    Instructions modified version of Shutter4U's post.
    at this point, if your scanner still isn't working, do this:

    If not, add it with a text editor. Use the format that the other scanners use.
    in other words:

    6) sudo gedit /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf

    then add the lines:

    # Canon LiDE 200
    usb 0x04a9 0x1905

    save the file and test with xsane.
    thanks to whoever the genius is that made these scanners work with linux, and for desertdog's instructions in this thread:

    no more Canon products for me, i'm done with that company
