Hi, I’m taking a view to ubuntu-mate in the last week, coming from Xubuntu experience in the last 3 years.
I’m really satisfied about mate, particulary for the graphic side: no tearing, no scratch on the screen, good.
The problem I can’t resolve is to make my multifunction Canon Pixma MG5350 working as a scanner.
Printer is connected and working via wifi, but when I try to scan a page the result is:
"Error opening device: opening device ‘pixma:MG5300_192.168.0.30’: Invalid argument."
This is the output of scanimage -L
[email protected]:~$ scanimage -L
device `pixma:MG5300_192.168.0.30’ is a CANON Canon PIXMA MG5300 multi-function peripheral
But if I try scanimage -T:
[email protected]:~$ scanimage -T
scanimage: open of device pixma:MG5300_192.168.0.30 failed: Invalid argument
I never had such a problem in Xubuntu (nor 14.04, nor 16.04).
Searching the web I’ve seen that the bug can be in the libsane version, particulary the 0.17.18.
Is this version still in use in mate?
Any idea or help to solve?
Thank you in advance.
