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 ?
