But still, what would be the link between CUPS and saned ?
Actually I don't think there is a link, I'm looking for a symptom. When I installed my printer via CUPS, the URL began with lp:// and saned never saw the scanner. When I installed with hp-setup, the CUPS URL began with hp:// and then saned did recognize the scanner. What I don't know is exactly what hp-setup is doing behind the scenes to make the scanner visible to saned. So my question is aimed at trying to see if hp-setup is doing things right. If it isn't setting things up properly for CUPS, then it stands to reason it may also be bombing out for saned. Like I said, I don't think there is a connection between CUPS and saned, it is just the only thing I can think of at the moment that would indicate if hp-setup is doing things properly.

And basically that is the long way of saying this one has me stumped.

It should work, but it doesn't. I don't know why. I agree with Hangdog42 in that the url for me begins with hp://.

Do you run SELinux ? Is it configured properly ?

There might be a bit of confusion here. SELinux isn't a distro, it is a security package/protocols/suite that is built into many distros, including RHEL descendants like CentOS. So if ClearOS is built off of RHEL and CentOS, it is highly likely that SELinux is built-in. Enabling SELinux is frequently an option at installation time, but there is also likely a GUI admin tool that will tell you if SELinux is enabled.

Oops, my bad...
There is no need for a GUI...
Quote:
[root@local ~]# sestatus
SELinux status: disabled
[root@local ~]#
So unfortunately the answer is no ...
