HPLIP not finding scanner

Ken Schneider - openSUSE
openSUSE 11.2 i586

When running hp-probe I get the following:

hp-probe

error: Unable to locate models.dat file

HP Linux Imaging and Printing System (ver. 0.0.0)
Printer Discovery Utility ver. 4.1

Using connection type: usb

warning: No devices found on the 'usb' bus. If this isn't the result you
are expecting,

powered on.

********************************

How do I fix the error of not being able to "locate models.dat file"

and the warning of "No devices found on the 'usb' bus" when I can print
just fine to this device?


This is part of dmesg after unplugging and plugging the MFP device:

Looks like it is missing from your install.

Ken, I had this problem once. I resolved it by downloading the "generic"
HPLIP, then uninstal the openSUSE version, then install the one from HP.

Hope it works for you.

Get rid of all PackMan's HPLIP packages and
use only the opsnSUSE HPLIP packages, see
https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=515005#c22
