    HP Scanner and Printer issues


    I installed Suse 9.0 Pro and most things seem to work, but not my scanner or printer.

    The scanner was listed in the driver list, it's a USB device, and the software installed, but when I click the scanner icon or try to import and image, nothing happens. All it does is show an hour glass for about 30 seconds. I rebooted, turn my scanner on and off and still no luck.

    My printer is on a parallel port and it finds my printer. They have a huge list of drivers, but just skip right over my HP 820cse driver. I tried installing another driver, sometimes works, but it didn't let me.

    I have many more questions, but I want to get these two resolved first.
