I'm a little skeptical that the hpoj backend supports the scanner in
question. See http://hpoj.sourceforge.net/suplist.shtml . Note, under
Unsupported Devices: "HP ScanJets (single-function scanners) are not
supported by this project. SANE may or may not support your model."
I see that the newer scanners, including (I think) this one, don't use
SCL , like older HP scanners. Apparently, the people at Vuescan also
find that the protocol used to control the scanner is too complicated to
reverse-engineer. So, I conclude, no love for the ScanJet 4600?
