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
