Today, I bought a new scanner – of course without checking linux compatibility : |
HP – a well known brand. Description says “Works with Max OS X, Win Vista, XP, 2000”. Linux wasn’t mentioned, but that’s quite common.
The default xsane backend package (<- v.1.0.19 [delivered with Ubuntu Hardy]) didn’t find a device, so I tried installing the beta release of the hp3900 sane backends (drivers).
This version is still beta status, but got my new scanner up and running : )
