Ubuntu PPA usable on Debian for LiDE 300?

Asked by andrew glaeser on 2019-06-25

I have been using a Canon multi-function device for scanning for some years, first with the Canon-software for Linux, then later directly and without any troubles with SANE.
Now the situation seems to be similar for LiDE 300, Linux64-driver deb-package is available directly from the vendor, but without any support for it.
You provide the letses sane-version, which shlould support the scanner, but are the packages from Ubuntu-PPA going to work on Deian-9 stable, or next version respectively?
When will they migrate into the main-brach on SANE?

They may or may not work depending on what the dependencies of the relevant packages say; you can try installing them and the package management system should tell you if their dependencies aren't satisfied. I'm afraid that we can make no guarantees whatsoever either way.

Also, in general, Launchpad staff only operate the infrastructure. For questions about any particular PPA, please contact the owners of that PPA directly.

Can you help with this problem?
