I've checked and it is supported by HPLIP which is installed along with Xsane. Xsane after a long time searching will find it but again after a long wait returns an error and says that it cannot connect. The error is " Error during i/o device.Someone using Ubuntu last year using Ubuntu and corrected it by commenting all the scanners he did need support for in the dll.conf file, restarted the HP 6110 and Xsane worked. So my question may be where do I find this dll.conf.file, and how do I comment things out?
Like Ubuntu, Mint creates a pretty basic printer definition. Your problem most likely lies with the DeviceURI defined in /etc/cups/printers.conf. My printer uses an IP connection rather than USB, but maybe an example will help anyway. Here's the default DeviceURI mint created:
And here's what was required by HPLIP for the scanner to work:
You can also see the DeviceURI in use by selecting System->Administration->Printing, then right-clicking on your printer, selecting Properties, then the Connection tab (although I'm not entirely sure, since I'm not using a USB printer).
Anyway, to find out what URI's to use for your printer, execute the following command in a Terminal window:
If you use the latter, you would need to first execute 'lsusb' to find the correct bus/device ID's.
This should return three URI's - CUPS URI, SANE URI, and HP Fax URI. Change your existing printer definition to use the specified CUPS URI, then create a new printer (call it "Officejet6110 Fax" maybe), and give it the specified HP Fax URI. XSane should now be able to find your printer, and faxing should work as well. It's not necessary to create a printer using the SANE URI.
Hope this helps,
