http://askubuntu.com – I can not get my Ubuntu 11.10 system to recognize the scanner in my HP Photosmart 5510 multi-funtion printer. I have loaded the HPLIP extras from my terminal window and loaded the latest HPLIP. I have searched the web and all forums for any mention of Photosmart 5510 Ubuntu drivers with no success. I have Simple Scan, Skanlite, and XSane all installed. The printer prints well, the USB works in any way I can detect. Thank you for your suggestions. (HowTos)
