Hi Peter,

I tried the above and it didn't open the HP backend. After many hours of
tweaking, I found that doing this makes scanimage find the scanner:

"LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/lib scanimage -L"

I'm not sure why this is happening. I'm using RH9. If I compile the
newest sane-backends, scanimage works fine.

I'll investigate further and post more findings. Has anyone encountered
similar problems with this scanner?
