I connected my Canon DR-M160 scanner via USB, to my Lubuntu laptop.

I get:

Bus 003 Device 003: ID 1083:163e Canon Electronics, Inc.

So it is detected !?
I guess I now have to install sane-canon_dr ?!

How to proceed so that I can scan ?


Just from your Dash search for the scanning default app named simple scan. Open it and you can use your scanner.

Refer to this and this for more info.
