How can I use the Canon G3000 scanner on Fedora 28?

Hello. I’ve installed ScanGear MP v3.30 from this website, but Simple Scan refuses to pick up the G3000; all it recognizes is my webcam. I’ve also installed the printer drivers from the same website, and printing is working just fine. Any help would be appreciated.

A. OK....sometimes...it's happen.. fedora or other system..! scan or printer error..in normal system.

B. printer work fine.! .so it's a check only scanner...in rpm version 32bit or 64bit for install; canon g3000 scan driver for fedroa...rpm package....download.. do you run in progress scanner install for fedora system ?

# wget http://gdlp01.c-wss.com/gds/3/0100007133/01/scangearmp2-3.30-1-rpm.tar.gz
# tar zxvf scangearmp2-3.30-1-rpm.tar.gz
# cd  scangearmp2-3.30-1-rpm
# bash ./install.sh

C. Check Support OS System.

# scangearmp2-3.30-1.i386.rpm  scangearmp2-3.30-1.x86_64.rpm
# rpm -Uvh scangearmp2-3.30-1.x86_64.rpm

Maybe those are just drivers for the printer side. Why not contacting directly the author of the driver? And, the driver is 3 years old already. It will hardly work on a modern distribution, I'm afraid.
