Canon, Scanner Debian, Linux Mint
I’ve tried almost everything to get LinuxMint to install the drivers for the CanoScan LiDE70 but it would appear to be a hopeless situation. Canon doesn’t support Linux (at least not for this version).
Perhaps somene here has a few good suggestions?

Trial and error.
Thanks for sharing.
They should eventually place a “stickie” for linux compatible drivers for scanners somewhere. Now, that would probably take all the fun out of it wouldn’t it?

Good idea! Didn’t think about that one.
Problem is, i don’t think i saw any from Canon itself.

Canon is well-represented in the printer database.

In a situation like this, what I do is attempt a manual configuration and look for a model as close to the one you have.
It usually works, but you may have to try several models before you find one that works.
