HP 5370c scanner and Linux

Today I hooked up my scanner in oscar. One year ago I would never think it could work and I did not even bother to try it. But now (with Ubuntu ^_^) you are spoiled and ”everything” work from the box.

I checked the SANE webpage to se if there were any haxx for me. But there were only one thing.. A link to a proprietary software called VueScan. On the web page you could download an evaluation and three minutes later I had the image on my desktop. The package costed $50, but I guess I’ll have to buy it.

I should send the bill to HP and bitch on them for not having Linux drivers or maybe I should stay with the open source driver. It didn’t scan correctly, but the image is cute anyway so ^_^
