I cannot install my Canon Canoscan LiDE 70 flatbed scanner on my Dell Dimension 3000 computer on which I replaced Windows XP with Ubuntu 12.04.4. The installation disk does not operate. It this device compatible with Ubuntu?


Install all the scanner driver packages and use the scanner with the application simple-scan

sudo apt-get install sane xsane xsane-common sane-utils libsane libsane-common libsane-dbg libsane-dev libsane-extras libsane-extras-common libsane-extras-dbg libsane-extras-dev

It is apparently not supported by the folk who write the SANE drivers (the scanner drivers used by Ubuntu)
