    Cool My HP Scanjet G2410 is recognised by Xsane in Ubuntu but scanning doesn't work.


    My HP Scanjet G2410 is recognised by Xsane in Ubuntu but scanning doesn't work.

    I get an error message that the device can't be started and get running....

    Can anyone help me...I really tried everything I could find on the Internet but nothing seems to help...

    HP doesn't provide support on this scanner on Ubuntu linux and Ubuntu doesn't help much either.

    Thanks in advance for you help,

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you tried rebooting the system, with the scanner attached and powered on?
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    Try installing HPLIP (HP Linux Imaging and Printing).
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install hplip
    If it doesn't install a shortcut in the menu, bring up the main program with this command.
    Code:
    hp-toolbox
    Once set up, it will use Xsane for the scanning part.
