Support Scanners and FAX in Canon Multifunction Devices?

Post by dcmhkl » Wed Dec 06, 2006 4:18 am

Specifically looking for support of scanner and FAX in Canon MP530 multifunction printer. Scanner is supported as a virtual USB device under Windows. Any support planned via Sane in Linux? And if so, when?

TurboPrint only supports the print function of multifunction devices. Scanner & fax drivers may be added in the future but there are no short-term plans.

Check out Vuescan (http://www.hamrick.com) - the veritable king of scanner programs!

I haven't checked if your Cannon is supported, but I'd be surprised if it isn't. And no, I have no connection other than as a very satisfied customer - it supports all my scanners (including a high-end slide/photo scanner) and gets way more out of the hardware than the manufacturers' supplied software for a very modest price.
