I have successfully installed a HP Photosmart C4180 using an Edimax Print Server (PS-1210MFn) in Ubuntu 12.04 via the CUPS configuration.The printer is working perfectly with print server on Ubuntu,but the scanner is not discoverable by XSane OR Ubuntu's Simple Scan program.Do you know what can I do in order to make work under Ubuntu?

There is a
scanner support via SANE
Looking at the SANE website:
Your scanner part of this all-in-one is not in-fact directly supported through the SANE project.
