How Do I Configure HP PhotoSmart C4580 Scanner
I have a HP PhotoSmart c4580 AIO printer, and am using Ubuntu 8.04 via KDE. I've read that at the moment, it isn't supported by HPLIP. Knowing that, I have been able to get the print portion to work by going through hp-setup, selecting the Network option and clicking the Advanced button. From there, I select all option but fax, then continue on. I enter the IP my router has assigned to the printer, and all is good. Using the PPD for the c4400 series, test pages print correctly, and all other print features / quality is outstanding.
Now, I am trying to get the scanner portion to work. When I attempt to refresh the device listing, I am asked to setup a new printer; either thru CUPS web interface, or through hp-setup. I've tried both, yet when I am done re-setting up the printer (deleting each time before i set it up again), i am continously prompted to set the printer up.
From another post i located on here about the c4440, I've installed all packaged listed:
Running XSane ends with message that nothing is found. hp-check gives the output at the end of this message. The printer is wireless, and again, printing works great. I'm rather a nood when it comes to Linux (but getting smarter everyday :-) ), but any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Note: hp-check can be run in three modes:
1. Compile-time check mode (-c or --compile): Use this mode before compiling the
HPLIP supplied tarball (.tar.gz or .run) to determine if the proper dependencies
are installed to successfully compile HPLIP.
2. Run-time check mode (-r or --run): Use this mode to determine if a distro
supplied package (.deb, .rpm, etc) or an already built HPLIP supplied tarball
has the proper dependencies installed to successfully run.
3. Both compile- and run-time check mode (-b or --both) (Default): This mode
will check both of the above cases (both compile- and run-time dependencies).
