How to run Canon CanoScan Lide 110/210 Scanner in Ubuntu

Yesterday I bought Canon’s CanoScan Lide 110 Scanner and today when I tried to run it on Ubuntu 10.10 I found an error, which said “Failed to Scan, No Scanners Available, Please connect a scanner” I was like WTH but one thing I like about Ubuntu is that whatever problem you face you can Google it’s solution it’s community support is really awesome.

So I found the solution for it. Just open your terminal and hit following command lines, restart your system and you are done.

$ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:plaxx/random-fixes
$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install libsane sane-utils
