How to add a Scanner?

so I have this Canon E4200 Series, I have manage to add it as a Printer via Network.

But on it’s Settings, All I can see, is a Printer Queue, Maintenance, and Configure Button.
How can I Scan? is there a separate application for scanning? over a network, preferably.

Thanks…

You can use skanlite from repositories.

In addition to skanlite there are a few notable ones;

Scan2pdf - Full featured, with the ability to scan from and back of documents, organize and reorder documents etc.

simple-scan - Simplistic UI but very powerful, fantastic cropping feature, perfect for scanning pictures etc.

masterpdfeditor-free (AUR) - Very powerful document editor with builtin scanning. A windows equivalent would be Adobe Acrobat

basically, it is not printer specific?

I’ll check it out once I’m back home. thanks.


Update:

So, Setting up Scanners is easier compared to printers.
Skanlite worked like a Charm.

I’ll check this out later on, Thanks guys.
