Linux drivers for HP 7710a Scanner?


Hi,

Does anyone know if there exist drivers for the Hewlett Packard C7710a scanner?

I checked HP, Sourceforge and SANE sites, so far, no luck.

I don't find anything by that model number from a quick google search. I would give sane a try though. Might contact the sane developers and see if possible maybe they have a beta version, cvs, svn release that may support it. You might even be able to provide them some info they need to support it.

Even HP does not have a driver for this same model, they re direct to the Scanjet 7400C so I assume that driver works for the 7710. Sane also has a driver for the HP 7400c so hopefully it will work for my scanner.
