Well, I got my scanner working. After some digging through the HP web site I
found the section for Linux support.
I entered the model information and my version of Linux (kubuntu 8.10) and got
a message that the version of HPLIP that I had was out of date and didn't
support this model. I downloaded a shell script which, when run, installed
everything I needed.
Now I have it scanning multiple pages just fine. What I haven't figured out is
how to automate the process of putting those pages into a single pdf file. At
the moment,I'm scanning them to a series of images that I save to disk. Then I
put the images into OO-writer and export the final document to a pdf file.
Anybody have a better idea?
One OS to rule them all, One OS to find them,
One OS to bring them all, and in the Darkness bind them,
In the land of Redmond, where the Sales Reps lie.
