Well, on the german lists we had this discussion about scanner
compatibility some time ago, and back then I tested our Scanner @work
(also a 5200c) with my notebook.
Could you give me a pointer to this discussion?
Since I do understand German, I could learn from this without
reinventing the wheel.
I think the warm-up of the device is a bit slow, before it actually will
I find it so terribly slow in comparison to its operation on Windows,
that I think it's not the HP scanner, but the software, or the way
I use the software.
Also the quality is miserable. Although that is probably my mistake,
I use the software with its default settings. It should be strange
that the defaults result in miserably low quality pictures....
I have changed the scan from "Lineart" to "Color"; this allows me to
have a long, long coffee break until the scan is finished!
One more thing I do not understand: I always have to give
"hp:/dev/uscanner0" as the device parameter to the scanner command.
When I do "xscanimage", I get
[xscanimage] No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something
different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and
detected by sane-find-scanner (if appropriate). Please read
the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ,
But "xscanimage hp:/dev/uscanner0" works fine.
However, "sane-find-scanner", returns the scanner, vendor, product etc:
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0, product=0x0401) at /dev/uscanner0
And "scanimage -L" returns:
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).
Is there a configuration file where I should define the default scanner,
i.e. "hp:/dev/uscanner0" ?
A side effect of this is (I believe), that sane doesn't work as a plugin
with Gimp. I think Gimp first tries to probe the scanner devices, it doesn't
get any, so the plugin doesn't work. Or something like this.
(Yes, I have compiled sane with "WITH_GIMP=yes").
Thanks for the help.
