I can't figure out from the SANE site when a particular model starts receiving support. But it sounds like your MX340 is newer than Fluppy's version of SANE.

As a test, you can try the above PET in Lupu. Or your unit may work OOTB in Slacko. But we need to know that first, below dealing with Fluppy.

Tried my canon MX340 on Saluki 22 no joy ... then tried Lupu-528, looked like it was detected as Xsane came up but got an "Error during read: Error during device I/O" message. Printer shows that there is a "save to usb pc" connection.

Loaded pixma_backend_lupu-1.0.22.pet ..... Got the same message

Loaded Slacko533F ... Xsane reports "no device found" OOTB. Thanks .. KJ

Hmm.. Slacko has SANE 1.0.21. So if your MX340 is not being detected, it must have first received support in 1.0.22.

I have packaged a version for Slacko below.

rcrsn51: Thank you very much for all your help with My MX-340 printer-scanner set up. I was about to edit my last post and saw that you had already responded. Turns out that both pixma_backend_lupu-1.0.22.pet and pixma_backend_slacko-1.0.22.pet work with Slacko533F. Did a test file scan and save to file and both .pets work on my older Acer Aspire 5570Z laptop. Great to have the scanner up and running... I really like Fluppy12 but will need to move on before long .... Thanks again KJ

Glad to help. As a test, could you please try the pixma_backend_slacko-1.0.22.pet in Lupu? It should be backwards compatible.

rcrsn51: Tried the pixma_backend_slacko-1.0.22.pet in Lupu-lucid528. Sorry .... no joy. Xsane did not work. Ran sane-find-scanner ..... detected MX340 .... Ran scanimage -L and got this error message
Code:
scanimage: error while loading shared libraries: libjpeg.so.8: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
What shall I try next? KJ

My mistake - I uploaded the wrong file. The new PET above fixes the missing lib in Lupu.

Sorry .... I need to retest my setup before I comment. I downloaded the Updated 2012-06-30" pixma_backend_slacko-1.0.22.pet but now I can not find the pixma_backend_lupu-1.0.22.pet for download on page 3 (?) anymore so I guess you would like the "new Slacko .pet tested? KJ

Yes. This one works for me in Lupu with my MP490. But it sounds like your MX340 is a bit different.

rcrsn51: Updated 2012-06-30" pixma_backend_slacko-1.0.22.pet works fine on Slacko533F but still not working on Lupu528. Xsane comes up on screen but "preview" or "scan" still gives an immediate "scan-I/O error" KJ

Here is one more thing to try in Lupu:

Open a terminal and type
Code:
export SANE_DEBUG_DLL=255
export SANE_DEBUG_PIXMA=255
xsane

Do a scan. Hopefully, the last message that shows in the terminal will be useful.

rcrsn51 This is the response section.

That's a mystery. I have no idea why this driver would fail with your MX340 in Lupu. Like I said, it works with my MP490. This sounds like some kind of low-level USB issue.

As a final test, could you boot Lupu off its Live CD using "puppy pfix=ram"? Install the driver again and do a scan.

You could also try the same thing with Wary. The driver should be backwards compatible with Wary.

I googled this and you are not alone.

EDIT: I realized that I had burned the wrong lupu528 version to CD.... not the same as the USB loaded version (lucid528v4) .... am burning correct copy for comparison. KJ

Since the SANE driver is problematic, here is the official Canon driver. You will also need to install the scangearmp_common-1.5.pet from Page 3.

This driver uses its own scanning program - find it in the Graphic menu.

For the purposes of testing, run "scangearmp" from the console.
scangearmp_mx340-1.50.pet
