I installed scangearmp using the instructions from this website:
http://ubuntuhandbook.org/index.php/2014/12/canon-driver-scangear-mp-ubuntu-14-04/. However I want to change the scan settings so, for example, I can just leave DPI set to 75 instead of the default of 300.
How do I change the default settings in scangearmp?
- Computer is Intel NUC - Intel Core i5-6260U @ 1.8GHzx4 Operating system - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS 64 bit Local disk space > 200 GB
- Printer/scanner is Canon MX926 like this one:
https://www.canon.com.au/printers/pixma-mx926. I can scan using the feeder (ADF) or the flat tray using the software.
- The software I installed is from the file named
- After installing the software using the link above, I can just open Terminal and type
scangearmpto open and use the program successfully.
The screenshot for the advanced interface is shown here. Note the Output resolution is what I mainly want to change from 300 to 75 dpi.
Also, when I swap between basic to advanced, the settings are reset to default.
How I can change and save these default settings and save a new set of default settings?
In terminal, I successfully install xsane by typing
sudo apt install xsane.
Then I type
xsane to open the GUI and then a little window saying 'scanning for devices' pops up, then this window opens. For some reason, xsane doesn't want to work with the PIXMA MX926
