<solved>simple-scan didn't recognize my my hp dj 3050

Postby lizbeth on Sat Oct 20, 2012 10:11 am

it's a hp deskjet 3050 and simple-scan didn't recognize it when i installed it.

when i ran simple-scan it activated my laptop's camera? confused? ok

so i figured i'd go into synaptic and remove simple-scan and the reinstall it, right? reinstalling proved no help. all the hp software is installed too... not recognizing my scanner. never had this problem with simple-scan before.

I'm not sure how to help on this, but you could try if disabling your laptop camera will help. You should be able to do so with:
Code: Select all
sudo modprobe -r uvcvideo

It was worht a try; at least confirming the webcam isn't interfering or blocking the scanner somehow. After a reboot your webcam will be back, or run:
Code: Select all
sudo modprobe uvcvideo

Do you have the package hplip installed? That might be needed.
