CanoScan LiDE 220 only produces vertical lines or stripes

Detailed description
I bought a new scanner canon lide 220, as it was mentioned in the sane database to work with ubuntu.
With ubuntu 14.04 sane-find-scanner gave a positive result, but scanimage -L did not found anything.
After an upgrade to ubuntu 16.04 both find the scanner correctly, but on the scan stripes or lines are seen, only, no matter if scanned by command line, by simplescan or by xsane.

I have a CanoScan LiDE 220 and I'm unable to reproduce this issue. What is the exact line you are passing into scanimage, and does the issue persist with other formats (like TIFF)?

From what I see in the Ubuntu repositories, the sane-backends source package (builds ubuntu's binary libsane and sane-utils packages) is a git version of sane-backends from several months before the 1.0.25 release.

Are you able to try to build the version of sane published on I think Ubuntu's version is pre-release and lacks an essential fix for genesys.

Ubuntu 16.04 is shipping a version of sane-backends from may 2015, months before the release of the real 1.0.25. This seems like a downstream distribution problem with Debian which Ubuntu has inherited. I would take it up with the maintainer of the Debian package which that Ubuntu package is based on, and if Jörg Frings-Fürst isn't interested, then take it up with the Ubuntu maintainers.

I'm going to mark this as Closed, since it doesn't seem to affect the latest version. Feel free to reopen it if you're still seeing issues with the actual release version of sane-backends (not the outdated one in the Ubuntu repositories).

Also seems that there is a newer version in Debian, seems like it's just a problem with Ubuntu not taking the right version from Debian, probably better to take it up with the Ubuntu folks first.
