[sane-devel] newbie: ever run Laserjet 3015 scanner?

Hello. I just brought a new Laserjet 3015 multifunction 
printer/scanner/fax. It is not listed as compatible printer in 
linuxprinting.org but someone reported the near model 3020 and 3030 
works (both printing and scanning). So I just brought it to give a try.

The printing works perfect (configure CUPS using postscript PPD file). 
However I cannot get scanning work on my Gentoo Linux with sane-backend 
1.0.14 and xsane 0.93, kernel version 2.6.7 (i guess I have libusb 
compiled but I don't know how to check).

Mr *Ivan Krstic* (ccikrs1 at cranbrook.edu) reported on 
linuxprinting.org the 3020/3030 model 'Scanning works with the "hpoj" 
SANE backend, <http://hpoj.sourceforge.net>'. Perhaps 3015 is using the 
same scanner?

I have hotplug service running, I have usb hotplug enabled in kernel, 
usbfs is enabled but not mounted (according to sane-usb(5) I don't have 
to mount usbfs if I have hotplug running). However here is my 
find-scanner message (why the scanner is not found?)

root@Sappho /home/zhangweiwu # sane-find-scanner

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make 
sure that
  # you have loaded a SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

  # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make 
sure that
  # you have loaded a driver for your USB host controller and have 
installed a
  # kernel scanner module.

  # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

  # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
  # can't be detected by this program.

My dmesg shows:
