How do I install a Canon Canoscan Lide 110? I gather from previous postings that it's possible but it's not clear to me what to do. I need step by step instructions please. Thanks.

If the drivers aren't includedin Ubuntu by standard and Canon doesn't provide them then your only choice is to write them yourself. –  Alvar Jul 23 '13 at 21:03

Described problems are two years old. Probably you don't have to do anything to make it work, as other posters confirm, that it is included in Ubuntu. If you are new to Ubuntu you have to know, that most scanners and printers are installed by default. That means you just have to connect the USB-Cable to your computer, open "Simple Scan" (Open the Dash pressing Super or Windows next to Alt, then write "simple scan" enter) and press Scan.

If no scanner is found, you will get a message.
