Ubuntu: How to scan a document with the scanner scan button


I have a Canon MP250 printer/scanner and I wonder if I can use the [Scan] button of this device to automatically scan a document, page by page.

This device has its own software to do this, but it is only to Windows (doesn't run with Lubuntu, even under Wine).

How should I proceed?


As of now, this does not work in Linux. The only solution is to create a Windows virtual machine and install the software there. This will also let you access advanced scanning features that the simplified scangearmp2 program does not.


If your scanner works with Sane, it should work with the ScanBD project. Unfortunately it's not always plug-and-play, you'll probably have to do a fair bit of manual scripting.

I haven't researched your specific scanner, I'm afraid.
