Unless you know exactly the environment they used for development, in
other words, their targeted (not even supported often times) distro,
that's to be expected specially for a scanner.

I think " HPLIP " software package from HP attempts to address that for
their products.

Here is one thing I remember from quite some time ago. There is this
piece of software called " VueScan " ( ). Paid
software but might, I say might address your issue under Linux.

Cheers. Fernando.
