I have enter Xsane configuration but I don't know if I should change pre-configured fax options nor which of the others to choose.


Xsane can convert a scanned image to various formats (tiff, pdf, ps). I would test with the preview option which should avoid image conversion or read/write issues.

Sorry, no idea what to test nor how to do it. :(

Image.

In this interface you can select options to preview the scan, save the scan to an image file, print the image file and convert the image file (tiff, gif, jpeg).

You can also adjust the scan density, color, area etc.

I would start xsane from a terminal and would do a simple test scan (grey, 150 dpi) on preview. Keep your eye on the terminal for error messages and post any that come up.

I have started xsane in the terminal
Code: Select all
ventolero@ventol:~$ xsane

I have tried a simple scan test on preview, and a window warn me: "Fails to open device. Invalid argument". That's what I get whenever I try to scan. No error in the terminal (nothing appears). However, it should be added that the name of the scanner that appears in xsane is "BisonCam, NB Pro:video0" and not Canon DR-F120 scanner.

Right now it is trying to scan with your webcam

If xsane does not offer the canon scanner as a device on start up then either the permissions on the device are wrong or the device is not configured.

Try searching your dmesg for canon
Code: Select all
dmesg | grep canon
and
Code: Select all
lsusb


If there is dmesg entry for the scanner then it is likely the permissions are incorrect. Post the lsusb output to help correct your udev rules.

From Arch Linux Sane Wiki

Try running
Code: Select all
# scanimage -L
as root to check for permissions problems.

Also check the Arch wiki for troubleshooting USB3 ports

Code: Select all
ventolero@ventol:~$ sudo scanimage -L
[sudo] password for root:
device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname BisonCam, NB Pro virtual device
ventolero@ventol:~$

I use an USB2 port in my computer, to connect the scanner.

I'm running out of ideas. The only driver seems to be the one link in the 3rd post of this thread. It may need an entry in the sane configuration file as described here.

I followed the steps described in this url https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SANE%20-%20Installing%20a%20scanner%20that%20isn%27t%20auto-detected and xsane still does not recognize the scanner.
However, I have seen that on the spanish Canon page http://www.canon.es/support/consumer_products/products/scanners/others/imageformula_dr-f120.aspx?type=drivers&language=ES&os=LINUX the DR-F120 Linux driver they offer is only for Debian 6 and 7 (I use Debian Jessie). It could not be that the asian driver of the third post was also for Debian 6 and 7 (although it is another driver version). I have both installed (the asian and the spanish) and I do not know if this causes problems. And I would also like to know if I can compile the asian driver for Debian 8.

I did a quick search and came up empty in regard to "Canon Scanner Source Code". Canon appears to just supply pre-compiled binaries.

There is sane https://github.com/kkaempf/sane-backends/blob/master/backend/canon_dr.conf.in code that has an entry for the DR-F120

The source I linked is dated after Debian 8. I may be worthwhile to try Debian 9. Debian 9 has a newer version of the sane-backends.

First I'll try the github code but I don't know how to do it. :(

The https://github.com/kkaempf/sane-backends/blob/master/NEWS for sane-backend 1.0.25 shows alot of commits for Canon scanners and version 1.0.25 is in Debian 9.

It is possible to build a package using github current code but can be a complex undertaking.

I read in Sane supported deviceshttp://sane-project.org:
The following table summarizes the devices supported by sane-backends-1.0.27.

And, in Canon DR-F120 entry:
Flatbed not working. ADF working. Simplex+duplex, all resolutions <= 600, gray/color, calibration poor.
:(
So I wonder if it is not better to configure wine and install from there the scanner drivers.
