Canon has their own scanning software ScanGear - I know that there is a version available for the MG2920, but you may have to wait until they produce a version for the MG3222. You could also examine the source code, or the driver for the MG2920, and see if they will work for your printer. The page with links to the source code and drivers is here

Use the Simple Scan application which should be pre-installed. If you can't find it, install it using: sudo apt-get install simple-scan See this for further information.

First, there are multiple issues visible from the information you provide: sudo: unable to resolve host – see Error message when I run sudo: unable to resolve host (none) Malformed Apt repository lists – see How do I fix a “Problem with MergeList” or “status file could not be parsed” error when trying to do an update? After you fixed those (preferably in ...

You need to install Epson driver from a deb file from Epson site. You will get an error message regarding lsb. Then run sudo apt-get install -f and all will be resolved if you are connected to internet.

ScanGear is a tool that dos not need Gimp (although it can be launched from within Gimp). To run ScanGear separately: scangearmp. So, you don't need to use Simple Scan or Xsane. To have ScanGear as a separate launcher/application easily accessible, create a desktop file - more here.

You need the Canon drivers installed for the scanner too. After that you should have the ScanGear tool, that can be run with scangearmp. More here on a similar issue.

If you have installed the drivers from Canon, the ScanGear application is there too. Run scangearmp. That command can be added into a .desktop file, like so. Or run from Gimp: File-Create-SangearMP. ScanGear can save as pdf

The drivers already mentioned in the question are just fine, only they cannot be used with the Simple San or Xsane tools, but they install a tool called ScanGear that can be launched with the command scangearmp. Outputs: png, pdf, pnm. To add a .desktop launcher for that: sudo gedit /usr/share/applications/scan.desktop and paste this: [Desktop ...

We had similar problems with our Canon scanner. Installing updated versions of xsane and its libraries from the SANE daily ppa got us mostly functional, although the document feeder still does not work. Another problem we encountered was that the ufw firewall was blocking access to the networked scanner. If you are using ufw and the scanner is ...

To install the driver go to Epson Drivers Site. Enter the scanner model into the search box and select Linux as OS. Click on download button at the right of "scanner driver". Accept the license. Click on "Package Download Page". Click on "Download" button for 32- or 64-bit deb package. I assume you have a 64-bit system. Copy ...

I suggest adding the SANE daily build ppa to your system and updating. This gained functionality of a Canon multifunction printer/scanner on our system in xsane. Everything works except the document feeder, which I have posted a separate question about. If Canon provides scangearmp2 for your printer, does that work? It works on our system, including ...

You need to open that file as root by running: sudo vi /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules Then you will be able to edit the file and save it. You can replace vi with whatever text editor you normally use. In Portuguese: Você precisa abrir esse arquivo como raiz executando: sudo vi /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules Em seguida, você será capaz de ...

So, I finally got this sorted out and it turns out it can also help for other devices like customer displays and generally for any other "serial to usb" devices which do not get automatically mapped to ttyUSBX. The main problem appears to be that the ftdi_sio driver (Serial to USB driver) does not recognize a specific device automatically although the USB ...

In my case, the upgrade modified the sane dll config file. I discovered this: /etc/sane.d/dll.conf.dpkg-old ... that contained the line brother3 while /etc/sane.d/dll.conf just said brother After updating dll.conf scanning worked immediately. I am on Ubuntu 14.04, using a Brother MFC-7440N network-attached (which uses a brscan3 driver).

I used VirtualBox Windows and it worked well. Other option was to open it like a usb drive and copy the DC100 folder of image files across. Having said that - It's flaky. I think OS upgrades have caused issues for USB devices. Even a 1tb external drive (USB3) was ignored by windows 7 all day yet Ubuntu was fine with it. My Brother print/scan device is also ...
