I'm trying to get my scanner/printer Canon PIXMA MG3550 to work over the network with XSane. The driver is installed and almost everything works (printing over USB & network, scanning over USB).
The scanner is recognized, XSane's info panel shows correct information about the device, so does
scanimage -L which returns
device `pixma:MG3500_192.168.xx.yy' is a CANON Canon PIXMA MG3500 Series multi-function peripheral
But when I hit the scan button in XSane I get the following error :
Error during read: Error during device I/O
Yet the scanner seems to respond when I click on scan or preview since I can hear the hardware briefly move before I get the error.
I'm running Debian Jessie. (I don't know where to look for XSane error log...)
Any suggestions ?
Edit 1 : I installed
scangearmp which is the soft provided by Canon and it works flawlessly.
I don't know why but previewing with XSane worked 2 or 3 times in an unpredictable way although I'm totally unable to reproduce this on purpose. At first I thought that deleting
~/.sane was the trick but after checking again several times I can confirm it is not.
