I tried to install myscanjet 5300C from HP under Yast. Unfortunately this USB-scanner is not in the list. Is there an other possibility to get this thing working?
As I wrote in my other mail, Scanjet 5300C is normally supported by Sane even if it is maybe not straightforward. If Yast does not mention the scanner it is probably because your version of SuSE does not have the latest version of Sane. It happened already to me. Thus download the latest source file of Sane-backend and compile it. The sane source files compile without problem in SuSE.
The only problem I had was with xsane, the graphical interface to use with Gimp. I wanted to install the SuSE package but Yast insisted to install its own outdated version of Sane. That was before I knew that checkinstall existed.
