    Re: Canon MF3010 Printer with Scanner Driver Installation

    if you go here

    http://www.sane-project.org/sane-supported-devices.html

    and search on Canon you get here

    http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sa...s.html#Z-CANON

    one finds entries such as this

    imageCLASS MF3110 USB 0x04a9/0x2660 Complete
    complete=degree of support

    backend=pixma and man page =sane-pixma

    ......so it should be supported......

    what does

    sane-find-scanner
    and

    sudo sane-find-scanner
    and

    scanimage -L
    and

    sudo scanimage -L
    give you?

    Re: Canon MF3010 Printer with Scanner Driver Installation

    I really do appreciate all of your help and time, it's really helping me out.

    So with regards to the commands, I started with sane-find-scanner and it threw at me that it couldn't find one and that I should try in root mode so logically I progressed to;

    sudo sane-find-scanner
    [sudo] password for ---------:

    # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
    # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
    # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

    # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

    # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have setup
    # the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.

    # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

    # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
    # can't be detected by this program.
    Then I tried the sudo scanimage -L and got;

    sudo scanimage -L

    No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
    check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
    sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
    which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
    Cheers again

    Re: Canon MF3010 Printer with Scanner Driver Installation

    I have not tried the scanner utility/driver but I did make a great discovery today regarding the difficulty of finding a Canon driver for their D530 D550 imageclass laser printers. There are no drivers and the one from asia just won't work. The Canon imageclass D530 D550 installs easily using the printer driver resident in Ubuntu 12.10 for the MP3010 printer. The printer performs as it should in both text and graphics. Hope this helps those who have one of the superb printers but until now were thinking that Win was the only way.......

    Wonderful! Mine is 32-bit, and this worked straight off.
    Many thanks.
    So I can print. Now to check this xsane thing...

    Re: Canon MF3010 Printer with Scanner Driver Installation

    Dear numbcoffee,
    Hope you don't mind me hitching a ride on this train of yours!
    Your question was exactly the same as my problem,
    except this system is 32-bit, so the printer driver went in
    very sweetly. Now I'm also stuck with the scanning.

    I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
    sane-find-scanner gives me a little more. I get the same # lines as you
    (without using sudo),
    except that it finds something:

    found USB scanner (vendor=0x0846, product=0x6a00) at libusb:001:004
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9, product=0x2759) at libusb:001:003
    # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
    # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

    However, scanimage gives the same error message as you.

    Plus, I thought find sane-find-scanner was supposed to
    give me a device filename, not stuff like
    libusb:001:004
    What is that, anyway?

    I've read some manpages and tried a few things, but I don't know what
    I'm doing here.

    Ok I'm dying here...

    Had to install Ubuntu, followed everything we discussed before and nothing is happening now... It says everything is fine but still nothing prints.

    Any ideas? Could anything have changed?

    Cheers

    Re: Canon MF3010 Printer with Scanner Driver Installation

    so last time around you had a 64bit install and posts #8 and #10 led me to believe it worked then.........my inclination for a new install; would have been it would have been much simpler for a 32bit install; I believe speed of internet access is more important than anything 64bit can offer..

    ........ for 64bit making the symbolic links before install seems helpful;

    so for 64 bit the steps are:
    1) make symbolic links
    2) use alien to convert and install rpm packages to deb (as Canon only supply 64bit rpm packages......)

    for 32bit
    1) install the specific debian packages Canon supplies

    Cheers PDC. I just got a brand new PC, Windows 8 was quickly removed haha.

    I will reinstall using the 32 bit flavour, this PC has the capacity for 32 gigs of RAM, switching to 32 bit isn't going to negatively impact anything is it?

    Cheers again
