the hp3300backend is now part of SANE (Scanner-Access-Now-Easy).
You can get the latest daily SANE version, patched for these scanners from

Development forum renamed

Since most posts on the development forum wereabout how to make the testtool / niash backend work on various set-ups, I decided to rename the forum to 'Help'. :)
Development issues can still be addressed to the mailing list.

Where is the SANE patch?

I removed the SANE patches (well actually I just hid them).

For some time now, the testtool package contains the 'patch-sane.sh' script, that patches the sane-backend sources. Therefore a separate SANE patch is more or less redundant.

To patch SANE now do the following:
1) Download and unpack the testtool and sane-backends source packages
2) Go to the testtool directory and patch sane-backends:
./patch-sane.sh ~/sane-backend-1.0.7
(substitute the proper sane-backend directory)
3) Go to the sane-backend directory and build sane-backends:
make install... read more

SANE 1.0.7 patch released

Another patch for SANE (version 1.0.7) has just been released. It adds a backend called 'niash', named after the main controller chip inside the HP3300/3400/4300 scanners.

First 'niash' SANE patch released

The first patch for SANE (version 1.0.6) has just been released. It adds a backend called 'niash', named after the main controller chip inside the HP3300/3400/4300 scanners.
Although experimental, it can do basic color-calibrated scanning on the HP3300, the HP3400 and HP4300 work too (but the image is stretched vertically and calibration may not work completely OK).
This patch was contributed by Ricardo Martins.

CVS started!

I just imported the testtool files into CVS. This should make it easier for all of us to contribute code / fix bugs etc. For now I created a subdir 'testtool' which contains both the testtool and the experimental SANE backend.

If you know some C and want to contribute, please let me know again and I'll add you as a developer so you can access CVS.
