    Canon LiDE 210 scanner in Ubuntu 12.04

    Success with a Canon scanner in Ubuntu!! What???
    Just amazing, given the history of Canon drivers and Linux.

    For the benefit of anybody who has not been able to get their Canon LiDE 210 working in Ubuntu 12.04, here is what you do.

    With scanner disconnected:
    In Synaptic
    Install xsane

    OR
    In Terminal:
    sudo apt-get install xsane

    NB libsane is already installed in 12.04. If you are using an earlier version of Ubuntu, you may also need to install libsane.

    Connect scanner via USB port and start xsane using:
    Applications > Graphics > xsane

    I was able to get a scan to take place on my Canon scanner, but the image was very dark. Is there an extra step to take in order to make the whites whiter?

    Initially I had the same problem with the first couple of scans, but things soon settled down and everything was fine.
    The scanner may need to warm up fully.
