    Have you tried looking in the hp project at Sourceforge?

    Try installing this package:

    hpijs

    This should give you the required drivers.

    Take a look at my post "HP support" in the hardware forum. HP says they are working on Linux drivers and I am trying to confirm it.

    Neither SANE nor Vuescan support some of the more recent HP scanners

    In re the HP project and "HPIJS"---these seem to be all about printing--I did not see any discussion of scanner support.

    I installed the drivers for my psc1210 from the hp project and the scanning functionality of my printer is fully supported. The hp device manager installs with a simple interface that provides quick access to printing, scanning, copying.[/img]

    Sorry, scanner not printer.

    This is a comletely different kettle of fish!

    I know its of little help to you now, but before you buy another scanner, check here first:

    So this is almost 4 years after the fact but:
    HP 4600 Scanjet Software for Linux - Chmil.org
    I've cobbled together something that will at least let you do a 600dpi full page color scan. From there, you can GIMP it to whatever format you prefer. Please let me know if it works for you. (Tested on Ubuntu.)
