Getting scanner to work

I have a HP Photosmart C4795 printer/scanner. The printer works but the scanner doesn’t. I have used this printer scanner with many other distros. Opensuse is the only one that can’t see the scanner part of the printer. How can I get it to work?

I got the scanner working by installing HPLIP.

problem solved :slight_smile:

Can you explain how you got it to work.
In yast SoftwareMaintenance I can see by searching with hplip that the following packages are installed:
hplip, hplip-hpijs and hplip-sane.

What have you done to make that the hp photosmart 6510 printer sees my computer, sothat I can scan a document
and that the output is passed as a scan-output file to my computer.

Thanks already for the help.
