Wish I could be of more help
When I looked at the Sane homepage, my scanner was listed. I was able to reinstall it. What I forgot to do at the time, was restart my computer. Once I did that xsane worked.
My problem still is with HPLIP and the HP Device manager. I cannot configure my scanner, as halfway through the process it says " you are not authorized to do this" and a pop up asking for a username and password appears. I have no idea what username and password it is asking for. My ROOT username and password evidently are not it, as they are rejected.
