HP Scanner "Failed to start scanner: Invalid argument"
with Fedora 18, and XSane, I have an HP 3500 series deskjet
I have been scanning fine. Even scanned about 40 documents today. Stopped for lunch, came back to scan some more and I am getting this error message "Failed to start scanner: invalid argument".
didnt change anything, didnt alter anything, i have rebooted both the computer and scanner many times, unplugged, changed USB ports, and still getting the same message.
When i start Xsane, it sees the scanner. But when i go to scan a document, that darned error message returns.
The printer will print from the laptop, but for some reason, the scanner portion is not seen by the laptop.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
