xsane HP PSC 750 no devices available


I have HP PSC 750 conneted to the USB port. I am able to print to this printer locally and remotely. However, when I ran xsane, I encountered a message "No Devices Available". Xsane found my IBM webcam when it is connected to the USB port, but it never found the PSC 750 printer.

Please help.

Thanks.

This one is tricky I happen to have the same printer and battled to get it working to use it with xsane+gimp. Let me see... you need to install (if not present) the hpoj drivers. Then comes a complicated set of minor configurations. Hrmm... whats your distro?

If you have hpoj installed you need to check a xsane config file named dll.conf, find a lind that reads hpoj and uncomment it (by default it comes commented, dont ask why)

Then you have to config, do:

ptal-init setup (follow steps)
ptal-init start
scanimage -L (this to test if your 750 is registered)

If the last step proves succesful you should be able to get scanning. Feel free to contact me if you have any problems.

Thanks for your reply. I have Fedora Core 4. How do I check if I have hpoj driver installed? If not install, how do I install it?

Thanks.

It should come on-board, but ask at #fedora at freenode.org irc.
