installed and running canon MP280 printer and scanner, but cannot recognize the scanner.

Asked by Kali_eskrima on 2013-04-13

installed the printer canon MP280 which has integrated scanner and printer. the ubuntu is recognizing the printer as well as we printed the test page. When I tried to use the scanning program i.e. Xsane or simple scan, it says that the scanner cannot be found.
what is missing? how can i make the canon work as a scanner?
thank you for fast answers!

Did you try the Canon Europe website for drivers? They do support Linux for most of their range of products.
