problem with Canon scanner (and printer) after upgrade to Mint 19 Tara

Post by stefanokan » Tue Nov 13, 2018 7:30 am

I have a multi function printer Canon MF4140. After upgrading to Linux Mint 19 XFCE the scanner and the printer were no more working.
The printer problem has solved here: viewtopic.php?t=280348&p=1545248
The scanner problem is a communication error. Installing the Canon correct driver for MF4140 is seen by the system as a MF4150. I don't know if this is the problem but there's apparently no solution. Sometimes if i detacheing e reconnecting usb cable the scanner works.
With Linux Mint XFCE 18.3 the scanner was working correctly.
