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)
