Asked by Pavlushka on 2016-02-06

I am waiting for so long to get a GL848 based canon LiDE 120 scanner supported sane-backend and I have collected sudo sane-find-scanner -v -v result, sudo lsusb -V result and usb scan-time data ( using usbPcap ) and added device to /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules and /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf and now to find what next to do????

Extracting the pcap file and decoding but on a busy schedule, so taking time. So far, Motor moving, scans and produces black image.

Yeeha,

Now its working, atleast at 300 dpi, I tried with frontend gscan2pdf with latest backend from sane-git, thanks to Stef.

I should tell you what I did, I tested the scanner in two ways, first one

#Opened a Terminal. Some backends use avahi to discover network scanners so I typed:

sudo apt-get install libusb-dev build-essential libsane-dev
sudo apt-get install libavahi-client-dev libavahi-glib-dev

#Installing git-core

sudo apt-get install git-core

#Downloading the source code

git clone git://git.debian.org/sane/sane-backends.git

#geting into the sane-backends directory

cd sane-backends

#runing the command there

./configure --enable-avahi

# then running

make

# then running

sudo make install

bingo, it works and the other way with sane and all its libraries installed did the following

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:rolfbensch/sane-git

#then run
sudo apt-get update

#then run
sudo apt-get -y dist-upgrade

and yes, it works as well!
