I have a problem with Libreoffice, through the version that came with my Peach OSI TW 16.04(Xubuntu) 64 bit 126.96.36.199 to the snap version I just installed today 188.8.131.52. other people on the net have reported same problem with LibreOffice in Linux over several years/versions.
I finally today got SANE(xsane) to see my scanner, Cannon PIXMA MG3070S, which previously only worked with the Scangear MP app supplied by Cannon, now it works with all apps using SANE - except for Libreoffice.
In Libreoffice click Insert - media - scan - select source
Nothing happens. No Errors or any popup.
Could you look into this, thank you in advance.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.open Writer, new doc or old
2.click Insert-Media-Scan-Select source
User Profile Reset: No
It should have searched for the scanner or at least have used xsane.

This indicates, that bug has been reported at least two weeks ago and noone has commented on it.
Please search in existing bugs, I see two for scanner, if all is the same problem and if this is a duplicate.
Well, could you link to them if you see them and could you tell me wjy it's not being fixed if existing?
Thank you in advance
Ps. general rule in bug tracking is to open your own thread, not piggyback on someone elses because not all scenarios is the same.

Lo is volunteer driven. So bug can be fixed in 5 days or not fixed in 10 years.
When bug is for scanner, rarely will volunteer tester have it.
So in this case it's better to check existing bugs, write there and follow.
From Ordisimo on Github who has confirmed this bug to be existing in newer LO but not in 6.4:
Ordissimo commented 6 days ago
With libreoffice6.4 I can scan with the ESCL driver.
On ubuntu 20.04, I downloaded the last version of libreoffice7.1, I can't scan. I noted the error encountered.
Add my feedback and the link on the open issue on scangearmp2, it gives a start answer to the problem.
Although Ordissimo hasn't commented in bugzilla, I think it is justified to set status to NEW.
=> NEW because of comment 7.
Version: 184.108.40.206 / LibreOffice Community
Build ID: 5751006d328844ba3fa6124ed263bbf122f0788a
CPU threads: 2; OS: Linux 4.4; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3
Locale: en-GB (en_GB.UTF-8); UI: en-US
Even after update I still can't scan into LO writer, is anyone looking into why this is happening?
With kind regards
