    scanning problem with hp psc - hpiod missing in action

    FC3 (which I love, so far) on Compaq Armada 1700 (which I tolerate)
    HP PSC750 (which I used to love)
    Have downloaded and installed what I believe to be the latest hplip
    Have an icon for HP Device Manager under Accessories and everything. When I attempt to start it nothing happens. Sane does not detect a scanner.

    Problem is, I have come to believe, the service hpiod will not start. It's listed as "on" in the Services box-thingy, but as stopped.

    Here's what the boot log says (and I get the same message however I try to start hplip or hpiod)

    [tt]Jan 15 21:37:45 localhost hpiod: execvp: No such file or directory

    I've googled hpiod and come up a little short. When I try to reinstall FC3 as an update, the only thing it installs is Mozilla. Any suggestions?

    hello,
    what happens when you do a /etc/init.d/hpiod restart ?

    also what drivers are loaded?

    hi.
    what happens when you do a /etc/init.d/hpiod restart ?
    Code:
    [root@localhost betsey]# /etc/init.d/hpiod restart
    bash: /etc/init.d/hpiod: No such file or directory
    as for drivers . . . here's where I sound stupid. I did an apropos drivers, which pointed me to lpinfo. So I tried lpinfo, lpinfo -m, lpinfo -v, also with /bin and /sbin and /etc but get a bash message command not found. If you would kindly help me figure out what drivers I have, then I'll gladly share that info. Should have noted at the start that you've got a super-newbie on your hands here! Also, I'm approaching hour 12 at the keyboard -- I'll probably be dreaming linux tonight.

    hello
    i don't have one so i am doing a bit of guessing, anywho
    try /etc/init.d/hplip restart - else try restarting what ever is in /etc/init.d/ and starts with hp .

    to see what drivers are loaded try /sbin/lsmod - i think there whould be usb-printing and possibly hpusbscsi listed.

    only other thing in the directory is hpoj, which when restarted seems to do nothing blatant.

    to see what drivers are loaded try /sbin/lsmod - i think there whould be usb-printing and possibly hpusbscsi listed.

    Seems to me that hpiod is just plain missing, or in the wrong folder/directory/whatever. The "execvp" folder.

    What I don't know is where hpiod came from - did it install with FC3, or with hplip? There is a folder in the hplip-0.8.4 folder called io that has a folder called hpiod with lots of program looking stuff in it.

    I'm at a loss.

    ;D Finally!
    Got it working - not with the hplip that some site somewhere told me to use, but with hpoj.
    ran as root:
    /etc/ini.d/hpoj setup
    and walked through the steps. SANE opened! It previewed! All is well!

    Thanks for the help!
