I'm using fc6 and my printer is a hp psc 1510 allinone. However for the
first time i scanning with xsane....i'm printing etc. but now i can't
scanning anymore....but printing works. I don't know whats the problem i
had reconf. sane backend but i cannot scanning either.........

[root localhost sane.d]# sane-find-scanner
  # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your

found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [HP], product=0x4c11 [PSC 1500 series]) at libusb:001:003
  # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

[root localhost sane.d]# scanimage -L

I attempted to use an HP PSC 1209 to scan in documents and dmesg referred to problems with usb ports. I guess the printer mode and scanner mode have to co-operate or one process off while the other process is on.

I did not know it ever worked. You might check your messages log and dmesg when attempting this. Also, isn't there a special program for all-in-one scanners that is needed? I do not scan a lot and was happy with the print capability, which I use mostly.

xsane crashes whenever I tried the scanner function though.

I can't help you, but I hope this gives you some ideas.
