In regards to your how to
Thank you so very much. I had tried a simpler tutorial with no success. Yours has worked to the point of getting my printer up and running and the scanner (if used with kooka) works also. xsane launches the license agreement but cannot, then find my scanner.
This is perhaps because of the differences in driver versions as well as Slackware versions.
I used your tutorial to install an HP PSC 1610 all-in-one on a full install of Slackware 11.0 with the 188.8.131.52 kernel.
Once again, thank you.
