printer but not scanner connects to HP Desk-jet 3632

    I use IUbuntu 14.04. Bought a HP Desk-jet 3630. I can connect the computer with the printer, and it works. But xsane (and simple scan) does not find the scanner. Is there a way to get it to connect, or is it just incompatible?

    I sort of stumbled onto the answer. It was a matter of downloading and installing this file:

    I found the file and the directions here at source sourceforge but they won't let me type in the address here.

    As near as I can tell the HPLIP file I had was not up to date. (I am no tech expert.) Anyhow it works, and I am putting this here in case other people have the same problem.

    You probably already have HPLIP installed in Ubuntu. You can check by entering this in a terminal:

    dpkg -l hplip

    Hi @linuxer and welcome to linux.org :)

    I hope you noticed this thread was over 2 years old (I didn't :oops:)

    But getting new information that will help others with the same printer-scanner can be useful to a number, so thanks for sharing. :D

    As I understand it, there are a large number of people out there in "Linux Land" devoting a lot of time to helping new and old Linux users get their (still working) equipment running with drivers, and I for one am thankful.

    Enjoy your Linux, and the site ;)
