HP scanner scanjet 8200 Not working

Post by tan159753 »

Hi

I am fairly new to linux and am having a problem using my standalone HP scanner model scanjet 8200. It works fine in windows but not in my Linux Mint 17.1 xfce distro. The scanner has a microfilm loader built into the lid and also support for automatic document feeder (ADF) as well but the ADF hardware is not installed/present.

When I try to load xsane it comes up with error
" failed to open device `avision:libusb:002:002': operation not supported "

Days and Days of googling suggest that it is trying to find the ADF hardware but doesn't and just times out. Examples of my problem and possible fixes are in the links below but I have no idea how to implement them.

http://sane.10972.n7.nabble.com/HP-scan ... 18946.html

command lsusb shows:-
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0bda:0111 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTS5111 Card Reader Controller
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0ac8:3420 Z-Star Microelectronics Corp. Venus USB2.0 Camera

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0000:0538
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 03f0:0b01 Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 82x0C
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

How can I apply the patches or what configuration files can I adjust to ignore the ADF?

This page also shows the same problem.

https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/789745

The link says that the scanner works with sane-backends 1.0.21 & I have read this somewhere else as well.
I have sane-backends 1.0.23 installed. How can I downgrade the package or even epgrade to sane-backends 1.0.25 (latest).

Can someone give me the terminal commands please.

This is the SANE project page: http://www.sane-project.org/

However, i also recommend to update you HPLIP driver as this might solve also some issues: http://hplipopensource.com/hplip-web/index.html

I have latest HPLIP driver but that only supports scanners with printers eg multifunction pinters. My scanjet is a standalone scanner.

I have visited the sane project page before but as a newbie, how do I install the latest version via terminal commands?
