LM14 - HP ScanJet 4070 no longer works

Postby Chibana on Fri Dec 07, 2012 4:48 pm

I've had an HP ScanJet 4070 for years. It's always worked in Linux. I recently had to replace my PC (old one died), and after building the new one, I also did a fresh install of Linux Mint 14 (I was on 13 on the old PC). Since then, my scanner no longer works. When I try to use it in any software, the software claims there is no scanner. The dmseg file/command finds it:

[ 1.480155] usb 1-1.2: >new high-speed USB device number 4 using ehci_hcd
[ 1.749033] usb 1-1.2: >New USB device found, idVendor=0001, idProduct=0008
[ 1.749037] usb 1-1.2: >New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
[ 1.749040] usb 1-1.2: >Product: hp scanjet
[ 1.749042] usb 1-1.2: >Manufacturer: hewlett packard
[ 1.749044] usb 1-1.2: >SerialNumber: CN4CQAL34PRW

However, lsusb tells a different story:
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub

Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0bc2:3008 Seagate RSS LLC

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 8054:0003
Bus 001 Device 007: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
Bus 001 Device 008: ID f617:0905
Bus 001 Device 009: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)

It seems to detect it as a "Fry's Electronics" device.

Thinking that this must be an issue with the new Mint, I booted to Commodore OS 1.0b9 (I have a hard drive dedicated just to OSes I want to play around with, same hardware other than the drive they reside on). The C= OS is based on a several version numbers old Mint (I think it was 11). However, I get the same results in Commodore OS, which makes me think something strange is going on with my new PC. All other USB devices are working fine (HP inkjet printer, mouse, keyboard, bluetooth, external hard drive).

Thoughts?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Here's what you need to do to get hp scanners working again:
Open a terminal and type:
$ sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-hpaio* /usrlib/sane

I had the same problem with other hp scanner models on Mint 14 (Nadia).

Here's the source page of my solution:

I beg everyone's pardon for intruding here, but I have experienced a similar problem that I have still not been able to address. My HP Scanjet 5370C worked flawlessly in previous versions of MINT. However, since I ugraded to Mint 14, 64 bit, mate, my scanner has not worked. The scanner is not even recognized.

This thread was most encouraging.

When I tried the suggested terminal entry, the following resulted:

walter@walter-System-Product-Name ~ $ sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-hpaio* /usrlib/sane
[sudo] password for walter:
cp: cannot stat `/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-hpaio*': No such file or directory
walter@walter-System-Product-Name ~ $

Part of the problem is that Mint 14 does not have a folder "lib64" under folder usr. Rather the path to the "sane" folder is usr/lib/sane.

I am still interested in finding a fix for this problem. All other usb devices work correctly.

Thanks

Most problems can also be solved by manually updating the HPLIP driver. The version that comes with Mint is older than the latest available release which can be downloaded from here: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/gethplip.html

Here's a How-to: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/in ... xmint.html
MSI GE70-2PE*Quad core Intel Core i7-4710HQ*Kingston 16 GB RAM*Intel 4th Gen. Integr. GPU/NVidia GeForce GTX860M*Qualcomm Atheros Killer E2200/Intel Wireless 3160*Sitecom X5-N600 Router (WLR-5100)

Thanks, I have tried this twice. It does not like the fact that I am using Mint 14.

Perhaps this will be corrected in the not too distant future.

Thanks for your suggestion.
