Question SOLVED: Scanner not found SANE HPLIB HP Officejet 1170c


Hi,

I have reached a dead end with this problem. Followed advice from other threads, but I can't get this HP Officejet to scan. The user is in the scanner group and I have tried as root.

Here is the output from scanimage -L.


Code:
$ export SANE_DEBUG_DLL=128
$ scanimage -L
[sanei_debug] Setting debug level of dll to 128.
[dll] sane_init: SANE dll backend version 1.0.11 from sane-backends 1.0.17

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).
[dll] sane_exit: exiting
[dll] sane_exit: calling backend `hpaio's exit function
[dll] sane_exit: calling backend `geniusvp2's exit function
[dll] sane_exit: calling backend `epkowa's exit function
[dll] sane_exit: finished

tail -f /var/log/messages - gave me this error:
Code:
Apr 23 11:49:05 localhost python: hpssd [WARN] Inrecognized URI: parallel:/dev/lp0
but not sure if this is a red herring

The results from sane-find-scanner:
Code:
$ sudo sane-find-scanner
Password:

  # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
  # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

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

  # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have setup
  # the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
  # can't be detected by this program.
As for sane config - /etc/sane.d/dll.conf contains hpaio the rest are commented out.

Oh one last thing dmesg

Code:
[4294684.092000] parport: PnPBIOS parport detected.
[4294684.092000] parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7, dma 0 [PCSPP,TRISTATE,COMPAT,EPP,ECP,DMA]
[4294684.106000] parport0: Printer, HEWLETT-PACKARD OFFICEJET PRO 1170C SERIES
[4294684.431000] lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven).

Can anyone suggest a way forward here?


Many Thanks

Dan

HP Officejet scanning

I found the only solution for this was to use HPOJ and kick out HPLIP. I now have scanning working without a problem. Thanks for Arch community for support with this as the package was reintroduced on request. This fix worked for me in other distribution's also.
