That should work, I think.
Could you describe what you tried.

I think you need to install simple-scan (or xsane) and probably hplip. Both should be installed by default, but you can install them via Software Centre. It should work then.

What version of Ubuntu are you using? Is there any error message?

Try xsane

Can you help with this problem?
