you can find a beta-version of the hp-backend that hopefully supports
parallel HP scanners. To test it with parallel interface, you need to change
/usr/local/etc/sane.d/hp.conf - file:
tells the backend, that the specified device is connected by parallel port.
As with the patch of the old backend (thanks to James Carter), it accesses the
directly with open(), close(), read(), write().
Reports that it works would be the best. If it does not work, set the
variable SANE_HP_DEBUG=5 and send the resulting printout to email@example.com.
As with other SANE-software, you should be aware that you use the software
AT YOUR OWN RISK. I dont have a parallel scanner and could not test it.
