INFO: Canoscan 650U/1220U works in 64bit Peppermint 7
« on: October 14, 2016, 05:00:46 am »
Canon never released 64bit drivers for this device only 32bit due to being a legacy scanner
and after various claims from 3rd party software, dead ends and frustration at the time..
I resigned to using 32bit OSes that would work with it. (circa 2010-11)  :(

Yesterday, I took the plunge and upgraded from 32bit to 64bit Peppermint 7.
This morning I plugged in the scanner to try and...

 :D WOW!  Success!  :D

After all this time the scanner worked in Peppermint 7 64bit as well as 32bit.  ;D
I am so glad I took the plunge to upgrade from 32bit to 64bit Peppermint 7 yesterday.
