Canon Scanner Woes Solved By Ubuntu 20.04
#1
I decided to go ahead and install Ubuntu 20.04 to a USB HD...just days before the release, assuming that this is a release candidate by now.

I'm actually rather impressed by it...and I have been using Linux Mint 19.x for the entire time I have used Linux as my daily driver.

But the one thing that may push this to my main daily driver...Ubuntu 20.04 has fixed use of my Canon TS3322 scanner!

I assume this new functionality comes in the 5.4 kernel...Linux Mint is only up to 5.3.x right now.

And I assume Linux Mint 20.x, with Ubuntu 20.04 LTS as its base, will bring along the 5.4 or newer kernel.

Me? I'm just happy I can finally scan in Linux! (The printer side has always worked.)

Hey Inundated
Your issue with your scanner would be been caused by a bug in Ubuntu 18.04, which broke compatibility with a bunch of scanners (including mine) which worked fine on 16.04.

Its good to hear that they have fixed this issue.
