Hello Guys,

i would love to use SL 6.1. Unfortunately it doesn't support my scanner. It's a Canon LIDE 110. As far as I know I need an actual version of libsane-backend. Is there any possibility to keep my scanner running on SL?

Kind regards

Arno

Are you using XSane as your scanner tool ?
I have a 'lesser' Canon LIDE 50 which works perfectly in SL 6.1
What is the output of xsane ? (type xsane in terminal)
Any error messages ?
Also in terminal type scanimage >image.pnm
What do you get ?

Maybe someone can assist after you have posted the outputs from the above commands ?

Thanks for you answer, U308!

Yes, I'm using xsane as my scanner tool. There is no output by xsane in the terminal. Just a graphical message that there is no scanner available.

scanimage told me: no SANE devices found

sane-find-scanner told me: found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9, product=0x1909, chip=GL848+?) at libusb:001:006

I think there is an actual libsane-backend needed.

Kind regards

Arno

If you are lucky it might just be that the USB ids are missing from the /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf config file. Maybe try add the following lines to that config file:

CODE
# Canon LiDE 110
usb 0x04a9 0x1909


Obviously I'm assuming you do have the sane-backends package from the SL6 repo installed.

Thanks, tux99, for your assistance.

Unfortunately it doesn't work with that little workaround.

Package sane-backends-1.0.21-3.el6.i686 already installed and latest version

Ok, that means that your scanner requires sane-backends-1.0.22, I will see if I can quickly build it for you, using the Fedora 14 source rpm as starting point.

I just realised that you seem to have SL6 32 bit installed, I can currently only build packages for 64 bit. sad.gif

Anyway I have just built sane-backends-1.0.22 for SL6 64bit, it's in my testing repo ( http://pkgrepo.linuxtech.net/el6/testing/ ), it's four packages:

sane-backends-1.0.22-3.1.el6.x86_64.rpm
sane-backends-devel-1.0.22-3.1.el6.x86_64.rpm
sane-backends-libs-1.0.22-3.1.el6.x86_64.rpm
sane-backends-libs-gphoto2-1.0.22-3.1.el6.x86_64.rpm

You don't need the -devel package.

The source package is in http://pkgrepo.linuxtech.net/el6/testing/source/ , maybe you or someone else here can build the 32 bit packages from the source package?

Or else reinstall the 64 bit version of SL6! wink.gif

Also I haven't tested the package (don't have a scanner connected to my SL6 box) so can't guarantee that it works.

Thanks, unfortunately my efforts are likely in vain since ArnoNüm appears to need 32 bit and I can currently only build 64 bit. Anyway, rebuilding the Fedora package was only a matter of minutes, not really anything worth mentioning. smile.gif

I saw that....its' the thought that counts; one little package like that can be HUGE to a user, especially with already owned hardware smile.gif Anymore I always buy scanners for linux that have the easiest support (Epson V500 now)

That's amazing, tux99! Thanks a lot for the effort and the fast-as-lightning-service. http://th166.photobucket.com/albums/u117/rdshear/Smiley%20Faces/th_smiley-face-thumbs-up.gif

My installation is just maiden-like, so I will turn it into 64bit tomorrow.

Good night!

Arno

Let me know if the scanner works with the newer version of the backend!

Arno, if you have tested it already, can you please confirm if the updated sane-backends packages solve your problem with the Canon Lide 100?

It would be great to get a confirmation as that would help others in future that might have the same issue.

@tux99

I was able to get my scanner Canon LIDE 110 on EL 6.3 to work by updating sane-backends-libs to 1.0.22-3.1.el6 you offer. Thank you so much!
