If you want it to work as network printer, you'll have to look around on the LAN but what I see is that there aren't any printers connected to 'localhost' ..... I'd say that is correct.
I'm not sure but I don't think scanning (i.e sane) works well over the network. You might want to configure that over USB.
I remember having vehement discussions on the Mandrake email list (with one of the 'Sane' devs) about the uselessness of network scanners because you'd always need physical access to the scanner to put the original on the plate....especially in a corporate office environment.
If I choose the debian GUI, Canon, then look for my model, it's not there.... And that GUI if I point it to the Canon Folder ( link above) do not find what it needs.... PPD I think (Need to try again later today)
Android phone, Iphone, other OS I tried, recognized my Printer easily....
Yeah .... I agree, printers are a mess because it's never clear who controls them.
I got into quite a spat with the SanE dev at the time.
Til Kampeter (CUPS dev) was a great guy but he didn't do scanners. All-in-ones didn't even exist then.
As for the scanner, since then (I installed the printer using the Canon script), the scanner is recognized but for now it doesn't work. Start and app fail... Will play will that and let you know how I fixed it
Those networked printers sometimes don't show up in the LAN. They are set up to be accessed directly through a preset static IP on first start. Check if other machines see it and what IP address it has....then search for it using that IP address.
Most App and Web interface I used have an icon showing The status... RED (STOPPED), GREEN (Started), Locked Icon (Presently Locked) etc
IF a lock icon for you do not make sense, yes some text could may be help
If I'm the only one asking for that, it means it doesn't worth doing it, else other would have asked for it before
In Programming or Business etc something people will complain about something and make a BIG THING ABOUT it the question to ask is always to ask : HOW MANY TIMES DID IT HAPPEN during the last month, year etc... Sometime we put efforts at the wrong place.
On another note, if something is recurrent, it needs to be addressed....
