Recently installed Opensuse 13.1 Gnome version and not used Opensuse before. Model of 3 in1 Cannon printer (including scanner) is Pixma MP280. Checked Sane Project's Website to see if this Scanner is supported and it is listed as good. Have used this scanner with Fedora 19 and 20 using Simple Scan software and it worked fine.

When I try using this Cannon Scanner with Simple Scan software with Opensuse 13.1, it churns and sounds as thought it might work, but it comes up with a message "Failed to scan- error communicating with scanner". When I click the Change the scanner icon in the dialogue box that comes up it shows the model of my Cannon 3in 1 printer correctly under preferences.

Please can you help me resolve this problem.
