Re: HP Scanner Difficulties

One thing I notice is that your scanner should be using the file /proc/bus/usb/003/004, so change the permission of that file:

chmod a+w /proc/bus/usb/003/004

Yes, I copied that command after I had replugged it in (it changed) but it doesn't work even when making sure of correct ports/permissions.

Have you updated to sane-backends-1.0.13-6 from ftp://people.redhat.com/twaugh/tmp/sane-backends/ ?

[root localhost root]# rpm -q sane-backends sane-backends-1.0.13-6

After that package is updated, you will find a file /etc/usb/libsane.usermap which will contain the correct information for you to update the /etc/sane.d/hp.conf properly. The entry in that file should be of the form

usb 0x____ 0x____.

Did you mean /etc/hotplug/usb/libsane.usermap? My scanner isn't in there, it is supported by the hpoj backend. Is there another file for this backend?

For PSC devices you should install libsane-hpoj -- my multifunction
scanner is working very well here and has been since FC1.

[root localhost root]# rpm -q libsane-hpoj libsane-hpoj-0.91-6

Is there some kind of config file I need to run first though? As I am not running any hpoj files or binaries, (except the one started by Kudzu). The scanner was auto found by kudzu as below snip from /etc/sysconfig/hwconf shows:

class: OTHER
bus: USB
detached: 0
driver: unknown
desc: "Hewlett-Packard psc 1200 series"
usbclass: 0
usbsubclass: 0

usblevel: 1
usbport: 0
usbdev: 2

Sorry for leaving this info out in the original post.
