Officejet 4500 : configuring the button of the printer


I would like to configure the button of my printer officejet 4500. However I do not manage to use scanbuttond daemon. How to test key pressing? It seems that nothing is seen by scanbuttond ... when I manually press a key on the printer.

$ dpkg -l | grep scan

I have an HP printer/scanner. In Linux I have to start the scan by using the software on the computer.
