I've been trying to get the Canon Pixma G2000 to work with Ubuntu 16.04.

I tried:

sane-find-scanner

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

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

On trying scanimage -L:
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

The printing function is working with gutenprint. If only scanning too
worked, I could finally get Windows off the partition!

Could anyone tell me if it's possible to tweak up support for this printer?
I can provide logs for anything needed. It's a simple flatbed usb scanner
on a multifunction printer.

Sorry I meant canon_dr.conf, not canon_pp.conf. The former is where I
have tried inserting the line, after doing it in pixma.conf didnt work

Normalement c'est le backend pixma que vous devez utiliser.
Par conséquent la ligne doit seulement être ajouter dans pixma.conf
Regarder dans /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
#pixma
remplacer par
pixma

Hi,

I just added your scanner to SANEs code.

You need to use my ppa:
https://launchpad.net/~rolfbensch/+archive/ubuntu/sane-git . But please
be patient, the ppa will support your scanner with the next version
tomorrow (1.0.27+git20170902).

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Rolf
