have a look at /usr/local/etc/sane.d/dll.conf. Make sure that it keeps a 
line that says


The file may also be located at /etc/sane.d
Then have a look at the file (/usr/local)/etc/sane.d/hp.conf.
Usually the line "scsi HP" should do the work to find the scanner. But 
you can also add another line that says


Then check if the permissions for /dev/sg2 are properly set. If you 
don't care about permissions, you can do as root a

chmod 666 /dev/sg2

And you can try to start

xscanimage -d hp:/dev/sg2

Good luck
