Thread: Yast cannot configure scanner HP 7400c

  1. #1

    Default Yast cannot configure scanner HP 7400c

    I tried to configure my HP 7400c scanner with Yast in OpenSuSE 11.0. Yast sees my scanner but when I try to edit its properties by clicking the 'edit' button in the 'scanner configuration' window, yast hangs and does not respond anymore.
    The following lines appear in the log file /var/log/YaST2/y2log after starting yast:

    When it hangs, give it about 5 minutes. I had the same thing happen with my Epson scanner. Yast is just REALLY slow when configuring scanners.

    Delete whatever configuration you have, and start the configuration process again. When it hangs, go make a sandwich or something. And when it hangs again on the next step, go make another sandwich and then watch a movie or two, take out the trash, do the dishes, and if necessary make another sandwich.

    And hopefully you won't end up looking like Michael Moore by the time you're finished configuring your scanner, but that was the solution for me, to just wait it out.

    Hi
    For HP printers/scanners I've normally installed hplip via YaST or
    zypper and then as root user run hp-setup. Then use hp-toolbox to
    control, never used YaST.
