Can not get scanner to work


I have a Canon MG 2220 printer/scanner.

I can not get it to work with either Xsane or Simple Scan.


Hallo fixit7

Here’s a workaround: :umbrella:

No it is not FLOSS, yes you will have to pay for the software. I have used it at work to keep a legacy scanner going (on windoze).

How are you connecting - LAN, USB, wireless?

Let us know if you solve the problem. :slight_smile:


I can not get it to run.

I use a cable to connect.

My scanner runs fine with 16.04. It should work with 18.04.


I got it working. Had to install libpng12 manually.
