I'm trying to get my Canon Pixma MP510 scanner to work under openSUSE 11.3. Canon Linux Support doesn't seem to have anything for 11.3, but sane claims to provide basic functionality. The printer is working fine, but I don't manage to configure the scanner.

I tried to configure via YaST, but the following happens: The scanner is found, but (correctly) labbelled as "not configured". Clicking "Edit", the PIXMA MP510 is listed and a driver suggested: "Canon PIXMA MP510: (Package sane-backends) Driver pixma should provide basic functionality (USB-ID 0x04a9:0x1717)" If I select this option an click on "Next", the window crashes and I get the following error in the KDialog window, but I have no clue what it means: "YaST got signal 11 at YCP file Wizard.ycp:849 /sbin/yast2: line 399: 5663 Segmentation fault $ybindir/y2base $module "$@" "$SELECTED_GUI" $Y2_GEOMETRY $Y2UI_ARGS"
Is this a YaST problem? Or driver related? I thought about configuring the scanner without YaST, but don't know how to do it. I tried to google a HowTo, but couldn't find anything useful.
The command "sane-find-scanner" successfully detects the scanner, "found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1717 [MP510]) at libusb:001:004", but the command "scanimage -L" yields "No scanners were identified."
how to make YaST configure my scanner? Or how to configure it without YaST?
