Description of problem:
I am on Fedora CORE 1 Kernel 2.4.22-1.2166.nptl the rest is
upgrade to newest and greatest.
My printer/scanner is HP PSC 2175.
try to run xsane.
"No devices available"
Xsane should find the scanner and use it.
Looks like Error #110174 but is not! I tried
to follow the advice given in the Comments to that Error but to no
avail. The sane related installed packages are:
I find my scanner with "sane-find-scanner"
found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [Hewlett-Packard], product=0x2b11
[PSC 2170 Series]) at libusb:001:005
However "scanimage -L" finds nothing.
The same device is also a printer installed with CUPS and works fine
It has to be noted that xsane works with the same scanner on the same
machine on another partition with the kernel: 2.4.20-18.7.cern
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
try to run xsane.
Actual Results: "No devices available"
Expected Results: Xsane should find the scanner and use it.
After googling I finally found the solution at:
and I followed step:
An extra step is necessary before the printer configuration tool
will be able to set up your multifunction device (bug #88086)
First of all you will need to become the root user with 'su -',
run 'service hpoj setup' in a terminal, and follow the instructions.
Then run 'chkconfig hpoj on' and 'service hpoj start'.
Strange that the printer worked without this??
I guess the case is closed. Sorry, if somebody looked at it in the
meantime... Cheers, Frank
Sorry again! The location is of course:
My last for today: I am left with the problem that after a reboot or
after scanning I have to switch off/on the device to use it as a
printer. I had that feature at RedHat 7.3 already. One can live with
