Perhaps one of these might help (from hp-setup --help
Parallel: $ hp-setup -i /dev/parport0
USB or parallel, using $ hp-setup -i US12345678A
USB, automatic: $ hp-setup -i --auto 001:002
Parallel, automatic, no $ hp-setup -i -a -x /dev/parport0
Parallel, choose device: $ hp-setup -i -b par
I think I'd try the first example, $ hp-setup -i /dev/parport0
and, possibly, the fourth, $ hp-setup -i -a -x /dev/parport0
but I would also think about /dev/lp0
(that shows up in your first listing).
I have to admit it's been at least 20 years since I've dealt with anything parallel (and I've forgotten everything I never knew about parallel) but it seems to me that printer and the like get mapped to /dev/lp-something
; the scanner may not, though, so perhaps that's why the /dev/parport0
is used above. You nay need to "walk" the port numbers, just in case; e.g., /dev/parport1
and the like. I dunno but I remember having to do things like that.
Ubuntu may not include or even need a scanner group (Ubuntu is another one of those thing I know nothing about); in Slackware 14.0 (the newest stable release), the scanner
group is 93 but that may not be relevant to your needs.
Anyway,best of luck with and best wishes for the season.
Hope this helps some.
