    HP 5610 All In One; Scanner Issues


    Ok, hoping you guys will have some ideas. Here's the deal. I'm running Kanotix (everything up to date).

    I can't get the scanner on my HP5610 All in One to function; even by compiling the HPLIP 0.9.8 fromhttp://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/ (newest version) software. The printer works great, but not the scanner. Both worked on Kubuntu just fine; so I don't know what the difference is, any ideas?

    you might have to install/use sane for the scanner

    yes, you have to install sane-backends and then in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf add hpaio to the list.

    you also have to start the hplip init script usually its
    /etc/init.d/hplip start

    or

    /etc/rc.d/hplip start

    then you need a program such as xsane. Which is very powerful and easy to use.
    All right, brain. You don't like me and I don't like you, but let's just do this and I can get back to killing you with beer. All New Users Read This!!! If you have a grub problem please look at GRUB MANUAL
