3500c scanner

Does anyone have experience getting an HP 3500c scanner to work under Linux? I'm using kernel 2.6.10, debian flavor (Mepis3.3) and the scanner is connected to a USB port. It works fine under Windows XP, the USB subsystem detects it correctly under Linux, but SANE will not connect with it. What I have read so far suggests that there is a new driver by NIASH, but that's not available as a binary, and I'm not into compiling yet...

Hello Stephen

Here is the list of supported scanners :

http://www.sane-project.org/lists/sane-mfgs-cvs.html

As you can see, HP 3500 is not supported.
Just a tip : for your next scanner, I would recommend a all-in-one (photo smart or office jet) as they have better Linux support :

Personally, I use PhotoSmart 2610 that have perfert Linux support.

Good lcuk.

I see that Kodjo says that the HP Photosmart
2610 has perfect Linux support, but the 2610
is not listed on the support pages listed
in his post. Where can I learn about the
HP 2610 support for scanning, fax, gimp,
etc...
