    Canon Pixma MP220 - sane fail error

    Hi

    Using Ubuntu 9.10 (beta) and a Canon Pixma MP220 printer/scanner.

    The printing works fine out of the box. Nothing to complain about there.

    The scanning however....

    Xsane was saying "operation was cancelled" when trying any scan or preview.

    So I decided to look at the command line for any further detail...

    Code:
    jafar@callisto:~$ scanimage -L
    device `pixma:04A91722_5006B8' is a CANON Canon PIXMA MP220 multi-function peripheral
    jafar@callisto:~$ scanimage -T
    scanimage: scanning image of size 640x877 pixels at 24 bits/pixel
    scanimage: acquiring RGB frame, 8 bits/sample
    scanimage: reading one scanline, 1920 bytes...	FAIL Error: Operation was cancelled
    jafar@callisto:~$
    Still the same. What does it mean? Is there any way to get any more detail about the error? Like WHY the operation was cancelled?

    Scanimage -v shows....

    Code:
    jafar@callisto:~$ scanimage -v
    scanimage: scanning image of size 640x877 pixels at 24 bits/pixel
    scanimage: acquiring RGB frame
    P6
    # SANE data follows
    640 877
    255
    scanimage: min/max graylevel value = 255/0
    scanimage: sane_read: Operation was cancelled
    Is there anything else I can post to the thread to help get me scanning with this?
    I converted my whole office to Ubuntu.... and everyone loves me for it!

    Weeelll, acording to sane everything should be okay.
    http://www.sane-project.org/man/sane-pixma.5.html

    Make sure you have libsane-pixma installed.

    Edit: So do we know that the scanner works okay? Has it worked on another machine?
