[SOLVED]Canon PIXMA MG5650 - problem with installing scanner

Post by Twinn »

I`m on Mint 17.2 Cinnamon (64 bit) and I`ve managed to install drivers for this printer and it`s printing fine. However I do have problem with scanner. I`ve installed scangearmp2-3.00-1-deb but for some reason scanner is not visible for example in SimpleScan app or any other scanning app. Could anyone help me with solving this problem please?

edit
I might add that in Win10, scanner works perfectly. I can provide more info if needed and I would be glad if somebody could help me solve this issue.

I managed to solve this issue and now scanner is working fine :) What happened? When setting up firewall, I accidentally blocked 8611 tcp&udp protocol port ;)
