I recently purchased a Canon 120 LiDE Scanner that does not work with Ubuntu 14.04.

I was wondering if it is possible to use the scanner via a Windows 7 x64 VirtualBox even though the scanner is not detected on Ubuntu 14.04.

Try this:

Open a terminal.

Press Ctrl+Alt+T

Run it:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install --reinstall libusb-dev build-essential libsane-dev git-core
$ git clone git://git.debian.org/sane/sane-backends.git
$ cd sane-backends
$ ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var
$ sudo make
$ sudo make install

Check if recognized his idVendor and idProduct, run:

$ dmesg

This command should report something like:

...... usb ?-?: New USB device found, idVendor=04a9, idProduct=190e

Continue running:

 $ sudo nano /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules

And add the following lines at the end of file:

# Canon CanoScan Lide 120
 ATTRS{idVendor}=="04a9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="190e", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

Ctrl + U Paste. Ctrl + O Save file. Ctrl + X Close nano.

Continue running:

$ sudo nano /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf

And add the following lines at the end of file:

# Canon CanoScan Lide 120
 usb 0x04a9 0x190e

Ctrl + U Paste. Ctrl + O Save file. Ctrl + X Close nano.
