Scanning from HP OfficeJet Pro L7590 (continued)

Funny, at the mention of desert by her sister, the little one magically woke up. So on with the show…

I found some information on using SANE with a networked scanner. The man page is sane-net. I added the IP of the OfficeJet to /etc/sane.d/net.conf and sane-port 6566/tcp # SANE network scanner daemon was already in /etc/services. No joy.

After some searching, I found you can enter http://<OfficeJet's IP> in your browser and scan from the web page! Project done–on to brushing their teeth.

Scanning from HP OfficeJet Pro L7590

The subject all-in-one is connected via ethernet. I tried to scan from it using xsane. It said no devices were found. I tried hp-check -r and it said error: Not found. SANE backend 'hpaio' NOT properly setup (needs to be added to /etc/sane.d/dll.conf). I did and ran it again. This time it said

'hpaio' in '/etc/sane.d/dll.conf'...
OK, found. SANE backend 'hpaio' is properly set up.

Checking output of 'scanimage -L'...

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).

OK, a little progress. I ran sane-find-scanner and it checked for SCSI and USB scanners and skipped parallel port scanners (which I don’t have). No mention of network-attached scanners.

…And my daughter informs me my youngest has fallen asleep at the kitchen table. Gotta run.
