Unable to scan - Canon Pixma MP600

Thanks and apologies for the delay in responding, for I have been away in a remote place with no internet access. I'm now back. I did come across the SANE project in my earlier searches but couldn't work out what it was, or how to use it, though I did suspect it might involve the Terminal, but I hav...

Re: Drivers missing Canon Pixma MP600

Drivers missing Canon Pixma MP600

My Canon PIXMA MP600 printer will print from my old laptop, but cannot scan documents – where can I find the missing 'scanning' drivers please? The Canon website does not offer them. My searches show that this is a common problem with other Canon printer models too, but following the links provided ...
