Using HP PSC 2210 with Ubuntu Linux

FAX functionality using HylaFax

sudo aptitude install hylafax-client

This installes the following binaries: textfmt, faxalter, faxcover, faxmail, faxrm, faxstat, sendfax, sendpage, edit-faxcover

To send a fax from your terminal, run (-n : no coverpage, -d : destination):

sendfax -n -d0711123456 brief.ps

scanning

Switch the device off and on again in the case you're getting I/O Error.

To get scanning to work I had to add hpaio to /etc/sane.d/dll.conf (If that doesn't do the trick then you can try to delete the HP PSC 2210 from your printers and run sudo hp-setup on the terminal.)

Now sane (xsane, scanimage) should work!

Please switch the device off and on again in the case it does give a I/O Error.

Debug SANE

Set the variable SANE_DEBUG_DLL:

export SANE_DEBUG_DLL=255

Then use sane (xsane, scanimage) and look at debug output.
