I recently acquired a "hand-me-down" HP Color LaserJet 2840 with which I
replaced my Epson 925 printer and 2400 scanner. The HP is attached
directly to my router with a local address, 192.168.1.12.
I have had problems accessing the scanner from gimp, 2.8.0. The xsane
device dialog would search and "hang" until I would kill it and try again.
Then xsane would not hand off the scanned image, format irrelevant, to
After a particularly frustrating session, I started looking for a/the
problem. I noticed that iscan remained from the epson equipment install
and checked to see the impact removing it would have, none. Except, now
my scanner appears in the File -> Create dialog maing the xsane device
dialog unnecessary, but that function works correctly/as expected now
also. And the image is handed directly to gimp rather than having to open
xsane separately and saving the scanned image to disk before opening it
Who'd a thunk that.... And the iscan driver was not Epson's version.
Goes to show that *anything* can cause problems :^)
