My Officejet 5610 doesnt scan on Fedora 11

Failed to open device 'v4l:/dev/video0' (it is usb-connected to my DELL XPS M1330 laptop)

Heres my output from 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 [HP], product=0x4f11 [Officejet 5600 series]) at libusb:005:002
# 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.

I need Fedora 15 drivers for a MultiTech MT5634ZBA modem... ugg.

You must have the most recent kernel, 2.4.2 or higher. You will also need specific modules for installation, they are explained below. The MT5634ZBA-USB has been tested successfully in Mandrake 8.1 and RedHat 7.2. Please read the whole document, as some steps depend on how the Linux system was built. You need to select the USB Modem (CDC ACM) support kernel option. If you build as modules, you need to install the acm.o option. You need to set up the device node entries for the various modems. You can use up to 32 modems with this driver. Use the following commands to set up the first four: mknod /dev/usb/ttyACM0 c 166 0 mknod /dev/usb/ttyACM1 c 166 1 mknod /dev/usb/ttyACM2 c 166 2 mknod /dev/usb/ttyACM3 c 166 3 You should now be able to use a terminal emulator program to attach to this device and connect to your modem or other terminal device. If your current version of Linux has the ACM driver compiled into it, then you're ready to roll. If it has the driver built as a module, then you'll have to enable the driver with the following command: modprobe acm At this point, you may have to unplug the modem's USB cable and then plug it back in (this isn't necessary if you're using kernel 2.4.X). You should see the modem's lights come on. If you see some activity lights on the modem, type the following: lsmod This command will display a list of loaded modules. The ACM module should be displayed as loaded. Now that you've got the driver loaded, you need to set up the device node (in /dev) for the modem. You can use up to 32 modems with this driver, but most people will only need to configure one. To set up a modem, use the following command: mknod /dev/usb/ttyACM0 c 166 0 You should now be able to use a terminal emulator program to attach to this device and connect to your modem or other terminal device. Going one step further, you can set up a symbolic link from /dev/modem to the ACM modem device. This is accomplished by using the following command: ln -s /dev/usb/ttyACM0 /dev/modem That way, KPPP and related applications can all refer to the modem as /dev/modem without caring what type of modem it is. Models: MT5634ZBA-USB If the above document doesn't get you going, send me a private email & I'll have a Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. Technical Support Rep. get in touch with you ;-)

Try scanning from your computer instead of using the printer controls. Go to your control panel and open up your devices and printers. Right click on your printer and select "Start Scan."

What have you done to make it work in Linux? If you open a terminal and plug in your camera, what do you see when you type in 'dmesg'? If the camera is able to be identified then your kernel has support for it. If it registers it as an unknown USB device, then you will need to recompile your kernel with support for USB webcams and v4l (video for linux). Also, do you have any v4l applications installed? Gnome Meeting is a good client to test to see if a webcam is truely working or not. Also take note of the camera /dev device location so you can configure another client to work with your webcam (such as Yahoo Messanger).

Hope this helps.
