Network Scanning--HP Photosmart D110A


I recently purchased the HP Photosmart D110A and set it up to my wireless network in Windows 7. I was also able to set up wireless printing in Arch. My question is: How can I set up wireless scanning in Arch? Please be as complete as possible, I am still very new to Arch and Linux in general.
Thanks

Load the HPLIP software.
http://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/i686/hplip/

I run openSUSE with a different Photosmart printer, but through HPLIP (source page, with documentation: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/downloads.html), I can just click the system-tray icon, and scan away. Should work the same for you.

Hello jdh313,

I've once written this http://www.linuxquestions.org/linux/...r_over_network short tutorial about scanning in a network. It has a different scenario since the scanner is connected to a Linux-computer.

But you should find some useful information there. Probably your users have to be member of the lp-group in order to access the multifunction-device.

How have you tested the scanning?

I set up my HP printer with HPLIP and it scans flawlessly with a wired or wireless connection when I use Xsane. It does not scan from OpenOffice or LibreOffice. This leads me to think that OO/LO scanning has issues.

Edit: The HPLIP GUI package is often separate from the HPLIP base package. Installing the GUI front-end (the command line for using it is hp-toolbox) makes using HPLIP a lot friendlier.

I already has hplip installed on my computer so that wasn't the problem. I went through all of the links but none of those helped either. Thanks for your help though.

Could you please post the output of
Code:
scanimage -L
and please check that in your /etc/sane.d/dll.conf there is a line
Code:
# /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
  ...
net
  ...

From scanimage -L
Code:
device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname Laptop_Integrated_Webcam_2M virtual device
Quote:
and please check that in your /etc/sane.d/dll.conf there is a line
Code:
# /etc/sane.d/dll.conf
...
net
...
The line net is uncommented on the document. Thanks for the help though.

Did you configure the /etc/sane.d/net.conf file with the IP-adress of the Scanner?

I did that, the file now looks like
Code:
# This is the net backend config file.

## net backend options
# Timeout for the initial connection to saned. This will prevent the backend
# from blocking for several minutes trying to connect to an unresponsive
# saned host (network outage, host down, ...). Value in seconds.
# connect_timeout = 60

## saned hosts
# Each line names a host to attach to.
# If you list "localhost" then your backends can be accessed either
# directly or through the net backend.  Going through the net backend
# may be necessary to access devices that need special privileges.
localhost
192.168.1.13
When I do scanimage -L I still get the same results and the hp-scan tells me there is no device.

I have one of those too, you don't need to bother setting up anything if you don't want to, it has a web interface.

Put the IP of the printer into any web browser, go to the scan tab and after you've scanned something, right click and save it. It will scan to JPG or PDF.

Thanks so much, that solved it and works good enough for me.
