What exactly is the problem? –  user46865 Oct 26 '13 at 6:25
    
besides a scanner cannot scan? The scanner cannot scan. –  gasko peter Oct 28 '13 at 19:43

1 Answer 1

Install hplip-gui in Synaptic package manager. (it is not installed by default). HPLIP Toolbox will appear in the start menu, open it, you will see the HP logo in the bottom panel right corner. Then open xsane, and a window will pop-up prompt you to install a "plug-in", that is it, follow the instruction and the scan driver will be installed automatically.

If the plug-in does not install itself, right-click on the HP icon in the bottom panel, and open HP device manager, click on menu list:"Device" - "Diagonose HPLIP driver", follow instruction and you might fix your problem.
