Is it really impossible to make CanoScan N640P work in Puppy?
What scanner in this world (parallel or usb) works?

Go to /etc/sane.d and open the file dll.conf.

Uncomment the line canon_pp.

Try Xsane again.

Several month ago i uncommented the line canon_pp whithout success.
Anyway one day or another i'll take up again the scanner from the cellar
to continue efforts to make it work. So i'll keep you informed soon.
Saluti.

Your second image shows that SANE has correctly detected the scanner.

1. Check your BIOS. The parallel port needs to be in ECP mode.

2. See the discussion here about the "force-nibble" option.

3. Maybe after sitting in your cellar for two years, the scanner doesn't work any more.
