network scanner (pixma mg4250) not found

Bug #1346415 reported by Leonard Michlmayr on 2014-07-21

sane-backends (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

sane does not report the availability of the scanner although bjnp detection works.

The attached file shows the output of SANE_DEBUG_BJNP=3 SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=11 scanimage -L

simple scan and xsane do not recognize the scanner either.

I have also tried putting the IP-address in /etc/sane.d/pixma.conf but it did not help.

Here is my workaround: Updated libsane-common and libsane to version 1.0.24 from the Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic" repositories. Pixma MG4250 scanner on Wifi is supported out of the box. Have not tested USB connection.

I have updated libsane and sane-utils etc. to utopic. Now discovery works without any trouble.

Thank you for the help!
