	by default the backend for HP3200C isn't activated, so it won't be detected 
unless you activate it. Some linux distribution have their on purpose tool 
for doing such, but you can do it by hand by editing the dll.conf file which 
is usually located in /etc/sane.d or /usr/etc/sane.d . Search for a line 


and remove the # to turn it into:


	Then run scanimage -L again. You should also get sure that the ppddev device 
is working, or the backend won't work.

	The umax_pp tool is included in the full source archive you can download and 
ccompile. Including it or not in the linux distribution you use is a design
