HP parallel port scanner & Fedora 9



Hi,

I'm trying to connect an older HP multifunction PSC 500 to a Fedora 9
box via parallel port.

HP lib does support it, but the xsane tool can not handle parallel
ports. I tried the hp-setup tools. It recognizes the device 
hp:/par/PSC_500?device=/dev/parport0

but a program error seems to prevent it from creating a config file

(Traceback: file /usr/bin/hp-setup, line 448, in <module> from installer
import core_install, ImportError: No module named installer)

I suppose Fedora uses it's own gnome based configuration tools as
mentioned on the hp-lib web pages.

Does someone know where I have to enter the parallel port information to
a make gscan2pdf work?  Unfortunalely I only found instructions for
older Fedora versions which used hpoj.

Thanks in advance

Peter
