I recently switched from windows vista to ubuntu 11.10. I realized that my printer/Scanner/photocopier was not working.I went on www.canon-asia.com and downloaded the driver for the printer.Now the printer is working fine.But the site doesnt have a driver for the scanner for linux and Xsane is not detecting my scanner . I tried running the windows and mac version of the driver through wine and acetoneiso but to no avail. Please help me out . I really need my scanner to work

Thanks
