I picked that scanner because it had a backlight in the cover to allow scanning transparencies and negatives a useful bonus.

And it seems that there is no support for that scanner yet in the sane package. Not recognized by xsane. I am queuing up my self here inorder to receive future updates regarding this problem. Monday through Friday, except holidays.

I did read that you should be ready ubunyu unplug a scanner if the element looks likely to try to go past the end, but that was just for people debugging new drivers. Scanning from CanoScan Lide results in black pages only.

Making Canon CanoScan LiDE 80 work (in Ubuntu)

I’m very sorry, but I was only lucky for about 10 correct clean scans after my above described reinstalling. Can be used to access any scanner supported by SANE over the net.


I have tested the scanner in Slightly updated patch instructions from above. Full flatbed support up to DPI Note: I thought that once the scanner was detected there would be no more problems.

[ubuntu] scanner canon canoscan lide 80

Then you should run this command in the terminal sudo apt-get upgrade libsane libsane-common libsane-dev And just see. The long-term plan is to support all the cameras supported by the gphoto2 libraries ubunty over models. Have read up on the web link.

At present the scanner is detected and it scans BUT the out is a black page. The program recognises the scanner ubintu Lide and there is a lettle noise from the scanner which stops after a few seconds.

scanner – canon lide does not scan the bottom of the page in text mode – Ask Ubuntu

The scanner now runs, but produces completely black images. Not checking for parallel port scanners. No No USB scanner. How to achieve that this fix gets picked up by future ubuntu updates and upgrades? The common source for scanner backend drivers is the SANE project. The scanner works very well under Windows Okay, Just do this and may be this will make you smile.


We do now have a working Scanner at home!

[sane-devel] support for Canoscan LIDE 80 expected?

Will await their response. It is actually fixed now. On another list the question of a black scan just came up.

Therefore the scanner is unsupported on other platforms. Scanner is detected, making a whirring noise but does not scan. Supports IPv4 and IPv6.

The driver may be included in your OS or you may not need a driver. Thank you for the response. In the event service is required for the Product during the limited warranty period, Canon USA offers two hardware support options:. The program gscan2pdf recognizes the scanner as Canon Lide But in my case, it didn’t light up, there was still enough power to run the stepper motor.
