    Done.
    Plug in the MP510 and then type dmesg|tail
    Output is

    You could also try lshal -m, then plug in scanner, and note what is reported.

    The output looks ok. See if 'sane-find-scanner' works now. (For usb-connected devices, no configuration is necessary).

    Same as posted in my first post: The command "sane-find-scanner" successfully detects the scanner,
    Code:
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1717 [MP510]) at libusb:001:005
    but the command "scanimage -L" yields
    Code:
    No scanners were identified.

    I must admit its difficult to see where things are not right here. Normally, the automatically-detected scanner is available to xsane (though libusb) when plugged in. I've never needed to 'configure' a usb-connected scanner. Network-attached scanners are a differnt story.

    You could try configuring via ncurses (text) YaST interface with

    Code:
    sudo /sbin/yast
    See if that works better for you.

    FWIW, I'll share this blog with you (as your model is mentioned):

    The Canon PIXMA Linux blog, for all Canon PIXMA all-in-ones: New Sane scanner driver for Canon Pixma MP610 !

    I wonder if you're having the same issue as described here:

    https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...ds/+bug/313504

    whereby the usblp driver is claiming the usb device, and preventing scanimage -L from detecting the scanner (even as root). Try the suggestions in #1 (re removing the usb drivers, then plugging in the hardware...)

    After researching this a little more, and testing with an epson CX5500 I had at hand, I experienced the same problem as you've described. This may point to broken backends with 1.0.21

    I was able to download Epson drivers from Avasys, and this brings in the epkowa backend, which fixed the detection for me.

    So, now I suggest you file a bug report both with Novell and SANE - Scanner Access Now Easy

    @deano ferrari: your earlier suggestion to try /sbin/yast (the text interface of YaST) was a success: I was able to configure the printer with the sane-pixma driver, and now I can scan with scanimage! Yesssss!
    Success is not 100%, though: xsane doesn't work. Although I could live without, I will give it a try. Need to do some more testing first, but won't have the time probably during the next two days. Will post as soon I have done it.
    A big THANKS to you, deano_ferrari!

    Well done Der-Michel! I would be interested in knowing which files in /etc/sane.d/ that the yast scanner config utility modified. I suspect saned.conf, canon.conf (or pixma.conf), and maybe dll.conf could be involved.

    It would be interesting to see if any entries got added to the end of one (or more) of these files, as it might assist others with detection problems:

    Code:
    cat /etc/sane.d/saned.conf
    Code:
    cat /etc/sane.d/canon.conf
    Code:
    cat /etc/sane.d/pixma.conf
    Code:
    cat /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
    It might be that 'usb 0x04a9 0x1717' got explicitly to pixma.conf for example (so that the backend is explicitly associated with the pixma backend). If/when you have time, please post the output so that I can examine these files for any changes. Thanks.

    Similar Gentoo thread on same topic (with similar model). Hopefully of help to others with usb scanner config issues...

    dll.conf is the only file that has been modified, the other conf-files are unchanged since installation. The output of cat /etc/sane.d/dll.conf is

    # The hpaio backend is provided by the hplip package:

    so only canon_dr and pixma are uncommented.

    The weird thing now is: I can scan from the command line with scanimage, but neither xsane nor skanlite works: skanlite starts scanning and stops after 17%. xsane can even do full previews, but when I press "scan" it says "operation was cancelled". Any idea what that could be?
