Can not get Canon Pixma TS 9120 to scan


Most hardware I have added has been hassle free with Ubuntu.

Not so with printers.

I installed a Canon Pixma TS 9120 printer/scanner.

It prints fine, but it will not scan.

Xsane says "No devices available."

sudo sane-find-scanner

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1820 [TS9100 series]) at libusb:002:003
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.


Thanks arochester. :)

I was able to use scangearmp2 to scan.

Too bad it does not have advanced functions like xsane.
