<SOLVED>Canon MX432 will print but won't scan: Linux Mint 14

Postby markfs15 on Sat Dec 29, 2012 3:50 pm

Has anyone had any luck getting the Canon MX432 to scan under Linux?
I could not get it to even print until I upgraded to Linux Mint 14 MATE 32bit.
Now it prints fine but need to try to get the scanner function to work. It will
work with Vuescan, but I am installing this for someone else and $40 to buy
the sw is a bit much for their occasional use.

I get "Failed to open device 'pixma:04A9175B_814C64': Operation not supported"
when trying to use XSane ver 0.998.

Trying to use Simple Scan, I get "Failed to scan. Unable to connect to scanner"

Any thoughts that I might try to get this to work?

Thanks,

Mark

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Resolved: Found and loaded the scangearmp-mx430series-1.90-1-deb.tar.gz.

Followed the instructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=12415128

Then copied the /usr/bin/scangearmp to the desktop so the user did not need to
run via command line in a term window. Now both the printer and the scanner work. :D
