duplex scanning with XSane 0.995 on Ubuntu 8.04 with the HPL7680.

Asked by MountainX on 2009-01-20

I am trying to do duplex (double sided) scanning with XSane 0.995 on Ubuntu 8.04 with the HPL7680. I have an ADF option (which works well), but I do not have an option for scanning duplex. What am I missing? Thanks.
Regards,
Dave

Hi Dave

   When you are scanning through Xsane, you need to select mult option and enter the No of document you are trying to scan.

Hi - I'm still not able to get xsane to scan both sides of a document that is in the ADF. Anyone care to give me the precise steps? Thanks.

P.S. I know how to create a multi-page scan. I want to utilize my scanner's duplex (2-sided) scanning feature.

HPLIP doesn't, at this time, support duplex ADF scanning. However it is on our list of features to add, although I can't give any ETA on when/if this is going to happen.

Sorry for the inconvenience!
