Scanner HP 4500C on Fedora Core 3


Hi, I am writing because after downloading and compiling xsane (sane) I don't get it to recognize my scanner (HP scanjet 4500c), in fact, it sayas: "no devices available"

When I run sane-find-scanner I get:

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure
that
# you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [Hewlett-Packard], product=0x1205 [hp
scanjet scanner]) at libusb:001:003
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be
supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

Just in case you need to know, when I run lsmod I get:

lsmod
