I used to be able to scan images using an HP 1310 series printer/scanner/copier and xsane in the past, when I was running Kubuntu. Now, on NRR, after connecting the device, xsane does not seem to recognize the device. Neither does Skanlite.
hp-setup recognizes the device, though, and can set up the printer function.
Following the advice at the Arch wiki for SANE I tried
only to get
No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).
What exactly is the sane-find-scanner tool?
I have tried switching the device off and on again, to no better effect. Also, it is recognized by KInfoCenter as a connected USB 2.0 device so:
Vendor ID 0x3f0 (Hewlett-Packard)
Product ID 0x3f11 (PSC-1315/PSC-1317)
The HP multifunction device I am using is an established model that was recognized by and worked with xsane in the past. Any help getting it to work again is most appreciated.
