I understand that saned is a daemon / API running in the backend, but I
believe that like CUPS's 'system-config-printer', it should come with a
frontend to manage scanners.
I have a network (wifi) scanner setup properly. One of my Linux machine
(a desktop computer) connects to it without any issue. I have setup
that machine with hplip. However, another Linux laptop cannot find it
on the network. I know its IP and I can ping it, figure out the ports
that are open, but there is no GUI to add a scanner.
In fact, I cannot even figure out how to add this scanner via the
terminal. Searching for any reference to it under /etc on the desktop
machine for which it works returns nothing. I have no clue where the
scanner is configured on that machine so I can copy the configuration on
The scanner is part of my MFC "HP Officejet Pro 6978 All-in-one". hplip
requires me to set it up (again!) with a USB cable. But this device is
already setup and I should not have to plug as USB cable to it and
reconfigure it. I should just be able to find it on the network and go
on with it, or at least, add it manually via a GUI.
Has this issue already been discussed? BTW, I am new to this mailing
list and I have no history regarding the SANE project; I am just a
