I'm trying to install my scanner "HP ScanJet 2400". I followed the recipe from here: http://www.elcot.in/linuxdrivers_download.php, However, it was not possible at all to detect it, when working in CentOS, Fermi & OSuSE OS.

Doess anyone have any suggestions on how to get this scanner working?

After connecting the scanner what does your dmesg output look like? –  slm Nov 5 '13 at 1:45
    
Also did you launch xsane afterwards and attempt to scan with the scanner? –  slm Nov 5 '13 at 1:50

OK so the USB device is seen, it's just getting the drivers working then. –  slm Nov 5 '13 at 2:14
