Firmware for the Officejet 4500 G510g-m ?


Hi, I would need a pro here. I would like to find the firmware to use it to scan with the tray (no hplip).

Do you read german, have they this file?

http://h30492.www3.hp.com/t5/Drucker...bar/td-p/35063

hp no firmware file

The firmware version is probably the: MWM2FN0936CR

where could I retrieve this firmware file please?

Is it this file attached from a board: http://gigapeta.com/dl/2311203ad59dc1 ? How to use it to scan please?


I need a bin from HP that could be placed to /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf
Code:
#------------------------------ General -----------------------------------

# Change to the fully qualified filename of your firmware file, if
# firmware upload is needed by the scanner
#firmware /usr/share/sane/snapscan/your-firmwarefile.bin
firmware /etc/sane.d/HP-g510.bin
I have a :
Hewlett-Packard Officejet_4500_G510g-m all-in-one

Under installed HPLIP machine, where to find this bin / firmware?
Code:
[ 1972.708148] usb 1-1: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
[ 1972.841930] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=03f0, idProduct=2d12
[ 1972.841942] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[ 1972.841950] usb 1-1: Product: Officejet 4500 G510g-m
[ 1972.841957] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: HP
[ 1972.842230] usb 1-1: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
[ 1972.913317] usblp0: USB Bidirectional printer dev 4 if 1 alt 0 proto 2 vid 0x03F0 pid 0x2D12
[ 1972.913374] usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp
[ 1974.254526] usb 1-1: usbfs: interface 1 claimed by usblp while 'usb' sets config #1


How to know what uses LIBUSB as firmware for this :
Code:
sane-find-scanner 

  # 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 kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
  # Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating system.
  # If using Linux, try "modprobe sg".

found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [HP], product=0x2d12 [Officejet 4500 G510g-m]) at libusb:001:004
it looks like it could be :
Code:
USB\VID_03F0&PID_2D12&REV_0100&MI_02 <---- Your Driver
USB\VID_03F0&PID_2D12&MI_02

Compatible ID:
USB\CLASS_FF&SUBCLASS_FF&PROT_FF
USB\CLASS_FF&SUBCLASS_FF
USB\CLASS_FF
and then?
http://ftp.hp.com/pub/softlib/softwa...1_Basic_14.exe

it gives:
OJ100ML411_Basic_14/drivers/dot4/win2000$ ls
difxapi.dll hppldcoi.dll hpzc3212.dll hpzid412.sys hpzipr12.sys hpzisc12.sys hpzius12.sys hpzs2k12.sys



where to find it and how to install in onto debian for scanimage?

thank you

solution will prevent users from installing HPLIP since HP would not like to make use of their HPLIP, without installing all their mess, as publicized in the package description:
"This package is useful for a minimal footprint headless scanning solution"

HPLIP refuses to provide support, since they simply refer to install HPLIP. I mean, that's not fair since servers needs really "a minimal footprint headless scanning solution" and we do not need HPLIP and other mess.


OK got it to work.

Code:
$ dpkg -l | grep sane
ii  libsane                         1.0.21-9                     API library for scanners
ii  libsane-extras                  1.0.21.2                     API library for scanners -- extra backends
ii  libsane-hpaio                   3.10.6-2+squeeze1            HP SANE backend for multi-function peripherals
ii  sane-utils                      1.0.21-9                     API library for scanners -- utilities

then you add the directory scan and the file scan.py that you take from hplip deb.

so that you have:

Code:
/usr/share/hplip# ls
data  scan  scan.py

Code:
mkdir /etc/hp/

then you simply do create /etc/hp/hplip.conf




Code:
# hplip.conf.  Generated from hplip.conf.in by configure.

[hplip]
version=3.10.6

[dirs]
home=/usr/share/hplip
run=/var/run
ppd=/usr/share/ppd/hplip/HP
ppdbase=/usr/share/ppd/hplip
doc=/usr/share/doc/hplip-doc/HTML
icon=no
cupsbackend=/usr/lib/cups/backend
cupsfilter=/usr/lib/cups/filter
drv=/usr/share/cups/drv

# Following values are determined at configure time and cannot be changed.
[configure]
network-build=yes
pp-build=yes
gui-build=yes
scanner-build=yes
fax-build=yes
dbus-build=yes
cups11-build=no
doc-build=yes
shadow-build=no
hpijs-install=yes
foomatic-drv-install=yes
foomatic-ppd-install=yes
foomatic-rip-hplip-install=no
hpcups-install=yes
cups-drv-install=yes
cups-ppd-install=no
internal-tag=3.10.6.15
restricted-build=no
ui-toolkit=qt4
qt3=no
qt4=yes
policy-kit=yes
hpijs-only-build=no
lite-build=no
udev-acl-rules=yes
hpcups-only-build=no
hpijs-only-build=no

then you type to see your newly found scanner
Code:
# scanimage  -L

and then you see that udev does not see it. Ok, let's work on udev.


OK. Let's simply change the UDEV to right permissions, into the directory /etc/udev/rules.d#
Simple. Done.


OK. Un/replug the USB of our officejet.

let's try:
Let's try now with a regular user:
Code:
$ scanimage  -L
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of dll to 0.
device `hpaio:/usb/Officejet_4500_G510g-m?serial=XX' is a Hewlett-Packard Officejet_4500_G510g-m all-in-one

Then what you do?
- Say thank you, + reportbug to libsane-hpaio (maybe one day, libsane-hpaio will care about it, and will tell you sthg else : INSTALL HPLIP and KDE and all the mess we advice you )

[ SOLVED ]
