The Canon Pixma MG2450 printer has an integrated scanner that should work with a tool like Simple Scan (or
xsane or Skanlite).
There are two sets of drivers (provided by Canon as deb files): two drivers for the printer (
cnijfilter-mg2400series) and two for the scanner (
scangearmp-mg2400series). All drivers can be installed just fine, the printer works, but the scanner is not detected.
As seen here, the Canon Pixma 2400 series is supported.
How can I use this 2 in 1 scanner / printer?
I have tried to use Xubuntu, Kubuntu and Lubuntu, eOS and Mint, and got the same negative results.
Note that the scanner works in Windows.
How can I get it working?
