    Firstly you need to make sure that the .deb package is there where I origonaly posted. It wont be in the root of the first folder it will be in /packages. Secondly,when it asks for your password just type it and press enter. It doesn't show any output as you type passwords in terminal. If you can't find everything where I said it would be try redownloading the file and extracting it to /home/steve . Then just going for it again.

    I am still looking for help with getting ubuntu 10.10 to recognize my Canon Pixma MP495 as a Scanner from the Simple Scan software. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    OK, So I have done quite a bit of research and found that there is no support or even mention of future support for the scanning function of the printer.Unfortunately in order to build a driver for linux for this printer it will require some special equipment for scanning the ***munication between the printer an a windows system... Or at least that the way that I understand it. There is support for several other MP series canon scanners though xsane but they haven't made it to this one or even mentioned it on the site.

    Could I load a different MP driver and use xsane instead? I don't need anything fancy, just the ability to scan.

    I don't know. Some printers use the same commands. You may be able to but I didn't find one. Read up on xsanes mp series drivers. You might find something I missed.

    Looks like there are Scanning drivers in here.

    Excellent, I'm really glad you found that. I searched their site but didn't come across those drivers.
    Ill test these when I get home also and post my findings. If this works Ill edit the first post to include it.

    Great find

    I unpacked the scangear common first similarly to your instructions on page 1 and then I unpacked the scangear for MP495 driver and restarted the cups service, however after that I still could not get xsane or simple scan to recognize the scanner. Hopefully you come up with something.
