I own a Mustek BearPaw 2448CU Pro II scanner. How do I use it with Ubuntu?

Open Simple Scan software and connect your scanner, it will detect the scanner and you will able to scan the documents. If the software not detecting the scanner you need to install the driver for it.

Here is the link for downloading driver for "SANE Mustek USB2 backend (driver) for Mustek BearPaw 2448 TA Pro USB scanner"
