http://ubuntuforums.org – hiya ubuntu peoples! i just bought a brand new "HP Photosmart Plus All-in-One Printer series - B209", and its fantastic, at printing, and taking up space and making sound effects. but i cant seem to get good quality scans. poor definition and an almost semi thresholded like look to things. does anyone else have this model, and if so is it working ok for you? i dont have windows, so i cant even test this against windows. for the record im using jaunty and the latest hplip package from the hplip website. help please, i really dont wanna drag this beast back to the store and return on the hunt for a scanner which can work with linux. and i checked my sane settings quite well and all seems normal, no enhancements no gamma/contrast/etc. garbage.
