So I'm trying to scan a picture using these instructions.
When I do scanimage -L, I get
#scanimage -L device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname BisonCam, NB Pro virtual device device `genesys:libusb:001:002' is a Canon LiDE 110 flatbed scanner
However, when I try sudo scanimage --format=png > test.png, I get
#sudo scanimage --format=png > test.png scanimage: sane_start: Invalid argument
I don't even know how to handle the firmware, and I don't know if I even need it.
Canon isn't in my /usr/share/sane/ directory, so it doesn't look like I have the firmware for it. I don't know how to install it and I don't understand the wiki instructions on how to do it.
#ls /usr/share/sane/ artec_eplus48u epjitsu gt68xx snapscan xsane
But in /etc/sane.d/genesys.conf, there is
# Canon LiDE 60 usb 0x04a9 0x221c # Canon LiDE 100 usb 0x04a9 0x1904 # Canon LiDE 110 usb 0x04a9 0x1909 # Canon LiDE 200 usb 0x04a9 0x1905 # Canon 5600F usb 0x04a9 0x1906 # Canon LiDE 700F
My account is part of the scanner group, so I don't think it is a permission problem.
When I do lsusb, I get
#lsusb Bus 001 Device 002: ID 04a9:1909 Canon, Inc. CanoScan LiDE 110 Bus 003 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub Bus 004 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp.

So I don't know what to do now.
I am also awesome wm. I think I've given all the useful information I can give. Let me know if there is anything missing.

Hi! did you find a solution for this? I am planning to buy Cannon LIDE 110 scanner in sometime and am running Arch of course. Thanks!
No one has gotten back to me and I haven't tried again since. Unfortunately, I'm away on vacation and won't be able to try again until next Wednesday. I'll definitely tell you how it goes the second time.
I don't understand why but I don't run into problems anymore. Weird...
