Description of problem:
Looks like a bug was introduced in sane-backends-1.0.21 that broke several Cannon Pixma scanners...
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): sane-backends-1.0.21-5 and sane-backends-1.0.21-6 are both affected, but this appears to be an issue with 1.0.21 in general with Cannon Pixma scanners.
This scanner has worked since Fedora 12, this is the first time I've fired it up under Fedora 14 though. With an affected scanner, install sane-backends-1.0.21, sane-frontends-1.0.14, and xsane-0.998. Run xsane:
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press "Preview", image scans into preview window
2. Press "scan", a popup error ===> "Operation was cancelled"
3. Scanner never was activated, no scanned image was produced
The document did not scan...
I expected the document to scan...
I compiled sane-backends-1.0.22, the issue seems to be resolved.
Here's a link to some discussion on this from the Debian side:
I haven't found it referenced yet on the Redhat / Fedora side
ahh... I must have HUA Syndrome. I found bug 583352. It helps if you search for Canon instead of Cannon. 677283 also exists out there to build 1.0.22.
A new upstream version with many bugfixes and enhancements has been released. Please check whether you issue persists with this updated package:
sane-backends-1.0.22-1.fc14 works with the Pixma scanner I own (connected by usb). It runs fine as a standard user. I have previewed and scanned several images tonight, stopped and started Xsane several times too. Looks good from here, thanks!
Thanks for checking!
sane-backends-1.0.22-1.fc14 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 14.
sane-backends-1.0.22-1.fc14 has been pushed to the Fedora 14 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
