Hello all, 

Please be patient with a novice here:  I'm trying to use twain-sane in
order to use the SANE interface with the scanner on a HP Photosmart
C4280.  This is running on Mac OS X 10.5.2.  Following the FAQ at
http://www.ellert.se/twain-sane/faq.html ,  I've managed to find the
scanner using "sane-find-scanner" and modified the HP42000.conf file
such that "scanimage -L" reports the scanner as well.  However, when I
try to actually scan using "scanimage > test pnm" it doesn't work.
However, "scanimage -d test:0 > test.pnm" does work.  There, the FAQ
states that this is likely a problem with the backend or its
configuration, and it encourages to email this group.   So here I am J


Have I modified the wrong backend configuration file?  Is the Photosmart
C4280 usable on Mac  OS X 10.5.3 via SANE interface?  Thanks in advance
for your advice in this matter.
