I mentioned the hplip driver earlier, which explicitly supports the 930c
(see The
scanner requires the
driver listed at -- I
don't know if there's an Ubuntu package for this.

As for your list above, I'm not sure you need all that. You need 'sane'
and its utilities, the 3300 scanner driver, and hplip for the printer
(along with CUPS).

Why any of this would require a pythin development system is unclear.
