    Re: Canon PIXMA MP250

    Thanks for the driver link. Good news, I was able to get the scanner working in addition to the printer You need to install the latest git version of Sane and compile it yourself. There are excellent directions here:

    This scanner isn't supported with Sane 1.0.20 or older. And guess which version Ubuntu 9.10 ships with? 1.0.20... meaning we just missed the mark, but I'm guessing this will be supported out of the box with the next version of Ubuntu with an updated package. Good luck

    Yes, now we can make scanning with scangearmp. However IMHO programs from SANE Project really better. For use it you need download fresh (CVS) tarball with backends: http://www.sane-project.org/snapshots/ . After unpack and compile (don't forget first install libusb-dev), you need copy all sane-libraries from /usr/local/lib into /usr/lib. After this, command scanimage -L will found device.

    Thanks... I was almost about to do this, but then I got it to work. The Canon drivers are good enough for me. So I'll stick with them untill I find some problems with them.

    I downloaded the manual and followed the instructions to install the scanner. It still didn't work at first until I restarted my computer, then it worked fine. That might help.

    Please tell us that you make when installing the device. Step by step. What drivers and OS do you use?

    Question Software source for XSane?

    That's a bit intimidating to us newbies! Alternatively, is there a software source we can add so that XSane will be automatically kept more up to date by the Update Manager without going through all that?

    I mean, I have the drivers installed and I'm printing and scanning okay, I'm just curious because it would be nice for my wife and kids not to have to open a terminal to scan things.

    Try this. You do it once and xsane should start working.


    Summary:

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

    Download the latest sane-backends git, cd into the directory wherever you saved it.

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

    $ make

    $ sudo make install

    Re: Canon PIXMA MP250

    Sorry to resurrect this threat, but I'm missing something in my own MP350 installation.

    I plugged it in and Karmic got some drivers by itself and installed itself, but when I tried to print off a test document nothing came out; though, the print queue history said it was printed.

    I got the two drivers from the canon australia site and installed them. Restarted the computer and printer, but it's just the same. The computer thinks it printed, but nothing comes out.

    What is interesting is that in Printer Properties all the buttons for test pages and print head cleaning become active and grey out as I turn the printer on and off, so there is some communication from the printer to the computer.

    Is there something I've missed or should try?

    I know this is really late but there are these PPAs: (xsane) https://launchpad.net/~dpm/+archive/ppa (sane): https://launchpad.net/~robert-ancell.../sane-backends however its only for Karmic. But I suppose you could attempt to use karmic's entry, no guarantee it will work right for ya though. But as they say, nothing ventured, nothing gained.
