scanner not working


Hi,
I have HP Scanjet 3770. UBUNTU 10.04 installed on my desktop. HPLIP also installed. This scanjet working well in Windows Xp but in ubuntu SimpleScan does not recognize it. It shows:-
No scanners detected
Please check your scanner is connected and powered on.
I Also visited http://www.sane-project.org/ & found as below-

ScanJet 3770 Unsupported. While an external binary-only backend exists, it works only on Linux i386. Therefore the scanner is unsupported on other platforms.

Please help.
Thank u.

try installing the package xsane, and use this for scanning.

Quote:
sudo apt-get install xsane
