Linux treats scanners completely separately from printers, so the printer driver has no effect on the scanner.

If you edited the /etc/sane.d/pixma.conf file to add the IP address, you will have to edit it again to put the new value in.
If your are trying to run scangear on a 64 bit system, that currently is broken (some have done some changes to their systems to make it work, you will have to read their posts as I have not done this myself).
Things not working for me in Ubuntu64:
Horizontal scrolling on my mouse. USB to Parallel port adaptors, HP 8200 scanner driver, floppy disks, FAX through network attached multi-function printer.
