Hi.

The scanner is not accessible from Vuescan (nor simple scan - at least before installing xsane)

I have used Vuescan on the same computer successfully with other scanners:
  • Epson Stylus DX4250 (USB / no additional driver installed)
  • Epsson expression home XP-432 (USB / no additional driver installed)
  • Epson Perfection 4490 Photo (USB / Driver from 2015 installed)
  • HP Officejet Pro 8610 (USB / no additional driver installed)

I have installed xsane, and I can access the HP ScanJet 3400C by using xsane. However I don't get the resolution and options that I expect by using Vuescan (max 600 dpi despite scanner support 1200 dpi + cannot save raw file etc... )

After installing xsane, the scanner also got accessible via simple scan. Before installing xsane I couldn't access the scanner by simple scan.

In short - this is what I have done trying to get the scanner work with Vuescan:
  • Ran lsusb -v to make sure that the OS can see the device.
  • Included the scanner in the 40-libsane.rules -file
  • Looking in LQ list of hardware. Found it there and a post from 2005 suggest it works with xsane.
  • Installed xsane (xsane can communicate to the scanner but Vuescan cannot)
  • Searched for driver for the scanner - no one (if any) found when searched online.
  • Tried to run Vuescan as root (just to exclude the possibility that the 40-libsane.rules somehow fails to allow the program to access the scanner w/o administrative privilegies)

lsusb -v for the scanner

I won't let an old, but fully functional computer die just because some company tell me that they won't make no more security updates to their OS. Thanks Linux :)

Update:

I just got answer to my mail from Ed Hamrick, and he confirms that Vuescan doesn't work with HP Scanjet 3400C.
