Setup HP PSC 1315 / 1310 - Scanner
Since its fairly simple to setup the Printing side of the HP PSC 1315 / 1310, i'm gonna explain how i did the scanner. (took me a month to figure out. - i ended up finding the documentation and it was dead simple)
Just to clear up - the hp psc 1315 is the same as 1310 - USE THE VALUE 1310
How to Install HP PSC 1315 All-In-One
make sure the hp psc 1315 is plugged in.
#1 Make sure you have the following installed:
#2 on a terminal, type 'ptal-init setup', and answer the questions (its short and
#3 now you wanna type 'ptal-init start' to start the scanner
#4 to test the scanner type in scanimage -d hpoj:mlc:usb:psc_1310_series_ --test
(if you don't have the 1315/1310 replace it that line with the device name:
scanimage -d hpoj:device --test
to find out the name of your device type 'scanimage --list-devices' and replace
the device name in the previous command to test it...
#5 now startup a scanning program like xsane or kooka :
For Kooka -
kooka -d hpoj:mlc:usb:psc_1310_series_
For Xsane -
you'll probably want to make sure 'ptal-init start' gets started each time the computer reboots.
Put it in a startup script or something...
Hoped this helped...
I have a psc 1210 that prints fine but I can't get it to scan, I'll try that only using the 1200 series. Hopefully that will work.
Let me know if it works or not...
Let me know if it works or not...
So far it hasn't worked but that's because I can't seem to install hpoj and hpijs. They keep complaining about dependencies, when I have them installed.
I'll let you know when I get them resolved
have you thought about installing from source?
doesn't suse 9.1 Pro have a package manager where you can install it through yast?
zubin thanks for your details.. I just bought a HP PSC 1315, and got it to work. Btw, I had installed the hplip and hplip_data which was giving me a HP frontend for the printer and scanner. But when I installed hpoj, it removed these two packages ( I was hesitant in the begining, but thought of giving it a try). And thankfully it worked. I was able to get my scanner working. Why are these two incompatible ?
Secondly, I suppose this printer has a max resolution of 1200 dpi, but all of the scanning options offer a max of 600dpi. Why is that ?
I've got to check it out
I've actually i've been wondering about that too....
I just haven't had the time to look into it...but then again 600 DPI is not that bad...
I'll try find out when i've got time and let you know...
Re: thanks zubin
One stop shopping rather than two different files.
I've used it for my PSC750.
Your scanner didn't work with the hplip?
According to this, http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/productsmf.php , the 1310 is supported by hplip.
i had followed the instructions on the link u r refering to. before that i had installed, hpijs. then hplip. and yes the scanner was not recognised !! i'll give it another shot, removing hpij and hpoj, as u say, if hplip is hpij+hpoj then it shoukd work. i'll let u kow what turns up..
Okay Sparky, here are my findings, after i removed hpoj, hpijs and installed hpijs, hplip.
1. hplip depends on sane for recognising the scanner. (lol !)
2. sane does not recognise, hp's PSC devices !! here is the link..
3. sane-find-scanner gives the following output...
# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0, product=0x3f11) at libusb:001:003
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
# Not checking for parallel port scanners.
# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.
# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
4. But, hp's page http://hpinkjet.sourceforge.net/productsmf.php says it gives a FULL support !!! Boy, let it support first !
btw, when u start hplip toolbox, and then configure it, what frontend do u use for scanning ?
any more lights ?
I just use Kooka for scanning.
I know I have sane installed.
Never thought abou it much.
Scroll up to my original posting...
It should work...its dead simple!
zubin, i kow it works and IS simple. thanx 4 ur original posting.
i was just curious to retry hplip. i'll go back and get rid of hplip.
the hpoj project seems to have met a dead end.. just look at this..
I know it works.
I've used it.
Follow these instructions here:
It's dead simple.
I had to edit my Slackware init scripts to start hplip not hpoj other than that it functions no diffently and is supported unlike hpoj it would seem.
