Scanner plug in/ scanner not working MFP M148fdw

Asked by Rick Mutschler on 2020-02-26

So I just moved to ubuntu and my hp printer works great except xsane or simple scan or any scanning does not work. If i try it says HP plugin not found. I know this sounds like i dont know much and you are right when it comes to linux lol. this is new to me.

Simple scan says unable to connect. it shows the scanner.
xsane says failed to open device error during device i/o

They both give me the option to install proprietary plugin but when i hit continue it just says nope wrong password lol.

if anyone can give me dumbed down help I would appreciated it.
