Description Nick Allen 2011-02-17 15:41:23 UTC
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.

How reproducible:

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
Actual results:

The document did not scan...

Expected results:

I expected the document to scan...

Additional info:

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.

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2011-04-04 11:42:44 UTC
A new upstream version with many bugfixes and enhancements has been released. Please check whether you issue persists with this updated package:


Comment 3 Nick Allen 2011-04-06 03:48:50 UTC
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!
