I'm having trouble understanding the process of getting the scanner of my HP OfficeJet Pro 8710 running completely on Ubuntu 17.04. Here is what I have done:
I checked the
hplip page for the printer. It says that Scan is supported. I installed
hplip and am able to print.
Reading this question, I also ran the check-procedure. It yielded no error message.
I then read that
simple-scan are tools to do the job. Both work. Both
simple-page can scan the sheet that is lying face down on the glass surface of my scanner. My question is this:
How can I make the scanning of many double-sided sheets of paper available via the duplex-scan?
(Forgive my English: With duplex-scan I mean the area that sucks in many sheets of paper in a row and is able to scan both sides without having to turn the pages and scan sheets one at a time. The German word would be ›Dokumenteneinzug‹.)
My knowledge of configuring hardware drivers is very limited, so I would be grateful for any information to help me to understand the process.
