Do you have HPLIP installed?

If so, take a look at the printer in HPLIP toolbox (/usr/bin/hp-toolbox). If it's not installed, it should be in the repos.

When I start the hp-toolbox application and highlight the printer for my officejet, it shows "scan" as one of the options.

When you start hp-toolbox and select the printer, does it show scan?

Dear Frankbell, sorry for the delayed response..When I click the toolbox , I have a printer Icon which mentions "HP 1050 j410 " and beside that there is an Icon for "PDF" (to be used when printer n/a I guess) ...I am not able to see any option for Scan..I have hplip 3.10 ...In Hp website , it is suggested that I download the latest 3.11 for this problem to get solved...In Mint repo the latest I am able to find is 3.10..

I have been working on this problem for the last few days, and finally found out that the current uptodate version of hplip will sort this out for you. You need to uninstall any version of hplip that you already have, be that with apt or manually, and then download and install this: http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/h...lip-3.11.1.run
You will need to open a terminal and navigate to the folder you downloaded the file to, in my case it was my Downloads folder:
Code:
cd ~/Downloads/
Change the permissions on the file to make it executable:
Code:
chmod +x hplip-3.11.1.run
Now, change to root and run the file:
Code:
sudo -s
./hplip-3.11.1.run
The file should install any dependencies required and then set up the printer and scanner correctly for you. This is valid for Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat, YMMV!

Thanks ...Have downloaded Hp 3.11.1 from your link..I ran the script in Mint 10...I got the error that gcc compiler is missing..Which package should I install ..There are a lot of Gcc packages in synaptic..I downloaded a cross compiler for different platforms (gcc-akara or something).It is not working.. Which is the correct package to be downloaded?

Apologies, for some reason your most recent post didn't flag up new on my list.

FYI:
Code:
:~$ gcc --version
gcc (Ubuntu/Linaro 4.4.4-14ubuntu5) 4.4.5
Copyright (C) 2010 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This is free software; see the source for copying conditions.  There is NO

This is what I have on my machine, and so far as I understand it, you can install this in linux mint using the following command:
Code:
sudo apt-get install build-essential
I'm not completely certain, but I did take a quick look, and found this: https://thasulinux.wordpress.com/201...linux-mint-10/ with regards to installing the gcc compiler in mint 10, seems to be the same as ubuntu. Hope that helps!
