You will need to use Xsane to initiate the scanning rather than the
'onbard' buttons on the HP device.
P.S. Does it have 'card slots' for your digital camera memory cards? It
works great for printing direct from the unit (but you still need to
'safely remove' (you will get a USB device icon on your desktop) from
the desktop though.
