Re: driver for canon pixma mp280 printer
Hi, I gave up using sane and other software, so I am trying to figure out if it is possible to use this scan with ubuntu for working purpose, or if it is necessary to reboot on windows.
I am using kubuntu 12.04 64bit, installed drivers from canon websites.
With Scangear, I have two problems and I wonder if you have the same:
a) colour: If i scan setting COLOUR or GREYSCALE I always get a page with a grey background, even if I scan a perfectly white page.
I got a white paper only if I scan black&white.
for example, a document scanned with colour setting, A4 at 200dpi, weight 6 MB as pdf. It seems too much for me, especially because using the software from windows it weights much less.
If scanned in Black&white it weights only 50kb, but the quality is not suitable to scan working documents (CV, applications and other important documents). The result looks like a declassified file. If I scan it at 1200 (900kb) )it looks better, but still not like greyscale and not suitable for job applications, for example.
All over the place, from the popular culture to the propaganda system, there is constant pressure to make people feel that they are helpless, that the only role they can have is to ratify decisions and to consume.
