Should probably be supported by this:


You'll need to put the IP in /etc/sane.d/pixma.conf as described in that 
section, eg. bjnp://<ipaddr>

For my MG3250 it sometimes gives an error trying to connect the first time, but 
it wakes the scanner parts and it works the second time.

Hi All,
How do I edit the pixma.conf file.
I do not know how to log into a root account.
In a terminal su works, but I am unable to get a working text editor.
Yours Sincerely
Stephen Grant Brown
