[SOLVED] Scan application ?
« on: December 16, 2015, 11:11:53 PM »
Hello guys,
I installed Xsane  and gscan2pdf  but none of them worked ... just the following message

"No scanning device found "

But It finds the printer and I can print without any problems ( HP all in one Photosmart C4580 )


I run the laptop with dualboot ( WattOS R9  and Mint 17.1)
When it runs on Mint   scanning a document or photo is a OK  with the already installed application came with the distro


Am I supposed to do any adjustments ?

Thanks in advance for your kind attention
Nikolaus

Sounds like there is a driver for the scanning function missing.

I'm no expert but if you're using the hplip app, open a terminal and type   hp-doctor   that will tell you what is missing.

That was the problem
I installed " hplip"  and everything is working fine
