I want to  encourage Ray to install the latest version of SANE and
its related programs available for his distro. I had a pleasant
surprise today when I installed the latest VectorLinux 6 SOHO Deluxe
on the computer to which my Canon Pixma MP160 is attached (USB).
When I  ran sane-find-scanner, I was surprised to see it listed and
scanimage -L revealed that it has a SANE backend. When I started
Skanlite, it came up with scanning options for the Pixma MP160. I
didn't have to install anything additional or anything from Canon.
Skanlite produced a very nice scan.

I don't know whether the latest SANE will support his scanner. It's
worth a look.

Unfortunately, SANE still does not come with a backend for my Epson
Perfection V500 scanner. I do have a driver for it and have been
successful in getting it to work, but it would be easier to have it
show up as an option in Skanlite.

Let us know when you get it working, Ray, and how you did it.
