HP Photosmart C4180 Q8110A scanning


I installed xsane in an attempt to get scanning to work under linux with my HP Photosmart C4180 Q8110A. Printing works flawlessly with CUPs but I get this output when detecting the scanner:

Quote:
root@blackout ~# sane-find-scanner -q
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [HP], product=0x5711 [Photosmart C4100 series]) at libusb:001:005
root@blackout ~# scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

I saw on a couple supported hardware lists that the photosmart series wasnt supported but then I saw other places where people said they were scanning with them. So whats the story? Is it possible to scan with this printer under linux?

Welcome to LQ.

Bumping here is counterproductive because LQ has an automatic bumping system. Adding a bump post only removes you from the 0-reply list.

Hope someone sees this & can help.
