Hello,

I'm using a raspberry pi (Jessie) and i use it to share my printers (one
Samsung and one Canon MG5750) other my network thru cups.

I would like also to share the scanner of my Canon MG5750 other my network.

First of all i would like to to make the scanner work out right on the
raspberry.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1) I've connected the pi and the canon with a usb wire.

2) I've upgraded the distribution on the rapsberry and then installed
sane-utils (version 1.0.24-8+deb8u1)

Description: API library for scanners -- utilities
SANE stands for "Scanner Access Now Easy" and is an application
programming interface (API) that provides standardized access to any
raster image scanner hardware (flatbed scanner, hand-held scanner,
video- and still-cameras, frame-grabbers, etc.). The SANE standard is
free and its discussion and development are open to everybody. The
current source code is written to support several operating systems,
including GNU/Linux, OS/2, Win32 and various Unices and is available
under the GNU General Public License (commercial applications and
backends are welcome, too, however).
.
This package includes the command line frontend scanimage, the saned
server and the sane-find-scanner utility, along with their documentation.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When i do "sudo scanimage -L" i get :

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).

Then i do "sudo sane-find-scanner" and i get :

# 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.
# Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating system.
# If using Linux, try "modprobe sg".
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x178e [MG5700 series])

found USB scanner (vendor=0x0424, product=0xec00) at libusb:001:003
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be
supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
# Not checking for parallel port scanners.
# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

When i do "lsusb" i get :

Is the scanner of the MG5750 supported by sane on a raspberry pi ?

Do i have to installed something else to make it work out right ?

Thank You for your help.

Regards, Bart.

your sane version is pretty old but even the 1.0.25 version does not
yet support the MG5700 series. You will probably need to compile Sane
yourself or find a PPA that has a recent version compiled from GIT. the
latest GIT seems to support the MG5700 series
