Laserjet M1120n MFP also works with foo2xqx

I have just bought the HP Laserjet M1120n MFP and was afraid that for Linux it would prove to be dead in the water after all.

After Ubuntu 7.10 already proved capable of printing (both USB and network) I installed foo2xqx on my regular Slackware 12.0 distro.

It works like a charm (printing at least, I'll figure out if I can use the scanner later).

And the scanner indeed also works. (After the proper USB id's have been inserted into the SANE code).

I've downloaded today's snapshot from http://www.sane-project.org/snapshots/ compiled and installed it (on a Ubuntu 7.10 box), but when I issue /usr/local/bin/sane-find-scanner the scanner still doesn't seem to be recognized:

/usr/local/bin/sane-find-scanner

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0, product=0x5717) at libusb:005:055
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
# necessary.


/usr/local/bin/scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).


I had a look at the source before compiling and in backend/hpljm1005.c there are these lines

/* Zero-terminated USB VID/PID array */
static struct usbdev_s usbid[] = {
{0x03f0, 0x3b17, "Hewlett-Packard", "LaserJet M1005",
"multi-function peripheral"},
{0x03f0, 0x5617, "Hewlett-Packard", "LaserJet M1120",
"multi-function peripheral"},
{0x03f0, 0x5717, "Hewlett-Packard", "LaserJet M1120n",
"multi-function peripheral"},
{0, 0, NULL, NULL, NULL},
{0, 0, NULL, NULL, NULL}
};


So it should work, shouldn't it? Any Ideas why it does not?

Thanks for any hints! Christoph

Oh well, I'm sorry. It's strange but after having installed and started "xsane" once, now the scanner is by scanimage -L and it works perfectly with xsane!!!
