According to sane-project.org
, your device is fully compatible with linux. I had the same message with an HP 3300 and I solved it. Probably it is the same thing. For me, the error message was misleading, as it was a permissions problem and it was solved by simply adding the user to the usb group and then re-logging. All the help you need can be found in the following document: /usr/share/doc/sane-backends-x.x.x/README.linux Also online at http://www.sane-project.org/README.linux
Hope this helps. Greetings from Europe.
