ok I've been trying to get my scanner working for some time now. I have an HP PSC 750 printer and it works fine with the HPIJS driver for printing. I installed sane and the HPOJ driver, along with the USB scanner support in my kernel.
here is the lsmod line for usbcore
usbcore 62976 1 [printer uhci ehci-hcd scanner]
looks like it should work
I run ptal-init -setup and it finds my device just fine
Probe for USB-connected devices ([y]/n)? y
Found "PSC 750xi"
with serial number "MY27MD41CZWB".
but here is the output of sane find scanner:
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
# Also you need support for SCSI Generic (sg) in your operating system.
# If using Linux, try "modprobe sg".
# No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a driver for your USB host controller and have installed a
# kernel scanner module.
# Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports can't be
# detected by this program.
