erm... I just stick an SD card into the reader slot and it appears on the 
desktop... (KDE, I don't do Gnome, don't like other people taking 
choices/settings away from me)

I use Xsane... launch it, it scans for available devices and gives me a choice 
of what it's found (I have a Hauppage TV card in the box as well and Xsane 
can aquire from that as well). Then I just preview the image, select the 
area, and acquire it.

(when setting up the printer, I had to manually find the correct driver as for 
some unexplained reason, the installed drivers package wasn't pointed to by 
the printer configuration wizard. Once that was done... well, Bob's your 
uncle) (oh, and I think there's a choice of two different driver systems for 
HP, hpijs and hplip, one works properly, the other doesn't. Can't remember 
which one I'm using)
