the sane site is lacking many recent HP all in ones.
Ubuntu606 implemetation is lacking some of them
scanning as well
There are bug reports regarding this.
The good news is HPILP is easy to compile
the cource (from HP via sourceforge has complet
documentation on the process, to include what
libarairies are necessary to do the job.
Compiling the latest version will get all the
functions working if the distro version doesn;t let
you scanner scan.
And you Need a front end, but not necessarily Xsane
Look for Kooka...I think it is part of a default
install of Kubunt.
