Description of problem:
After setting up the OfficeJet with the hplip-gui. Trying to run xsane or scanimage gives this error message.

[ben@snog ~]$ scanimage -d hpaio:/net/Officejet_Pro_8500_A909g?ip=
scanimage: open of device hpaio:/net/Officejet_Pro_8500_A909g?ip= failed: Invalid argument

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
make sure that you don't have the libsane-hpaio rpm installed and setup the printer using hplip-gui then try to scan.

Actual results:
it fails with that invalid argument message

Expected results:
it works.

Additional info:
the problem is that you need the libsane-hpaio rpm to be installed. Maybe it should be a dependency for hplip-gui? At the very least those programs should have a much better error message as to why they failed.

Installing the libsane-hpaio fixes the problem
