The scanner is connected via USB. I unplugged it, plugged it back again.
This is what I get in the console:

  uscanner0: at uhub1 port 1 (addr 2) disconnected
  uscanner0: detached
  uscanner0: Hewlett-Packard HP ScanJet 5200C, rev 1.00/1.00, addr 2

Okay, I think you already said that sane-find-scanner finds it. For comparison, here's mine:

speedy# sane-find-scanner /dev/uscanner0
  # 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=0x04b8, product=0x010a) at /dev/uscanner0

Now it's just a matter of specifying the scanner device name in /usr/local/etc/sane.d/hp.conf. My copy of SANE has this for the 5200C:

usb 0x03f0 0x0401

These should match the codes returned by your scanner. If they don't, add another line to hp.conf. Then, *I think* you need the line


at the end of the hp.conf file.

That should work for root. However, you will need to change permissions on the device or change group membership for it to work for other users.
