You mean the problem mentioned by the poster that wrote the article
you linked in the subject? Really? He has a Plustek 9636P parallelport
scanner while you are having a Hewlett-Packard 2300C which is listed
as a USB scanner.

Why do you want to load the kernel module for Plustek parallel port

Generally speaking, you may get more output in syslog
(/var/log/messages). But I don't think it will help in your case.

As far as I know there is no support for this scanner. At least that's
what http://www.buzzard.org.uk/jonathan/scanners-usb.html states.

While the Plustek backend does support some HP scanners that are based
on the LM983X chips, the 2300 doesn't seem to use these chips.
