Description of problem:
I am not sure if this is a bug or not, but I would think that libsane-hpaio should be a dependancy of hplip. I spent a great deal of time trying to figure out why I was getting an error when trying to use sane with my Officejet 7300. Turning debugging on and running scanimage -L showed the missing sane backend.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.yum --enablerepo=updates-testing install hplip
2.Install printer via cups web interface(couldn't get system-config-printer to work for a network printer)
Actual Results: xsane could not find any devices because hpaio sand backend is missing
Expected Results: Should have been able to scan after installing hplip
I saw a suggestion on fedora-list that sane-backends should just require
Nils, what do you think about making that change for FC5 onwards? The
requirement is not a necessity, but this problem comes up frequently enough that
it would avoid a lot of problems to just make libsane-hpaio a requirement.
Barring unforeseen improvements in the realm of RPM requirements, this sounds
like the sane approach to me (no pun intended).
fixed in sane-backends-1.0.17-12
