Have you got sane, and xsane installed? The hplip driver has a setup program you will need to run also.

Some distros need extra things configured, such as which groups are allowed to access the scanner.

From this link --> you can find all the necessary information for scanners, using setup, and distro specific instructions.

Hope this helps.
