Do Not Hack

  • USB-B cable required
    • There is a tendancy for USB cables to be borrowed for other things. There is at least one in the lowest wire basket by the hanger 23 front door.
  • powered from USB, does not need an extra PSU

"Just works" on Ubuntu 10.04


Windows XP requires a TWAIN driver. Plugging it in and allowing XP to try to automatically find a driver didn't work for me. This looks like it but I got it from a different site so not certain. Separately from the twain driver there is "canoscan toolbox", it's a little utility which can do things like scan and save as a BMP or jpeg. You don't need canoscan toolbox if you are going to use other software that can get an image from a scanner directly such as just about any image editing program. The driver and software are supplied as an installer inside a self extracting exe so they splat extra folders into c:\ The c:\canon folder is marked hidden.

Users of XP or windows 2000 may find it best to allways connect the scanner the same USB port. There is a vaguely written note in the toolbox readme mentioning needing to reboot.
