The hplip version is 3.14.3-0ubuntu3.2.

For the printer, I simply installed hplip via Synaptic, then Printers: 
Add Printer found  the HP psc 1310 and I selected Connection: HP Linux 
Imaging and Printing (HPLIP).

But as far as I know, hplip didn't have anything to do with the scanner 
installation.  I thought most USB scanners just installed with default 
modules.  For instance, I have another machine with a standalone HP 
ScanJet 5200C (and an Epson printer).  I just plugged in and powered on 
the scanner, started SimpleScan, and it worked.

I don't have any provision to test this with Vivid here.
