You may wish to check out www.hamrick.com
. they have an application
named vuescan that they claim to work with a huge number of scanners
on Linux. scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "supported
then click on "canon scanner drivers".
there isn't anything there named mfc<anything>, same as on the canon
support pages. Are you sure it is model mfcxxx, and not some other
number? is there a label on the back/side/bottom that gives
model or serial number info?
So, anyway, if you can figure out which of the devices they show
yours, you can download for free to try it.
Also, some scanners/multifunction devices have a USB port, and you
scan stuff on them which will be written to a USB stick inserted into
that port. Which would then be easy to sneakernet over to your LInux
box. If it has one, that is.

My error in
reading my purchase paperwork. I found the label on the
printer. It is an MF628CW. That could be the sole source of my
problem. I'll respond again to this thread once I try the new driver.
