    I didnt say it was as the physical scanner, I said the scanner settings. Most of scanning is the settings that you use in the software that tell the scanner what to do.

    I think that first of all you should upgrade your LinoColor to version 6.x to take advantage of ICC support and as the next step to profile your scanner using an IT8 or other suitable target and software

    Note the blueness is in the shadows not the highlights; the problem is that you've set the black-point incorrectly. Have a read of the C41 scan howto in my FAQ (link in signature) that explains this.
