I do not see any errors in the report, I assume you can print, the scan function does not work, right?
if others can help, please …

Right the scan function does not work.
Thanks a lot.

Take a look here, it might help?:

How to set up a HP printer in Ubuntu :smiley:

Still does not work scanner maybe is better to change OS :slight_smile:

Hi Simone,

have you tried changing your software sources download location and updating again?:

Your advices are not pertinent but with Fedora I have no problems.

Does your username need to be in the scanner group? I don’t have a scanner but trying to think of what else could be the issue … if your username is simone, sudo usermod -a -G scanner simone will add that user to the group scanner. Logout/login and try to scan …

I solve by my self, the problem was the corruption of the firmware of my HP Deskjet 2540, but I had to use a windows pc because the HP manual indicate the process to renew the firmware only by mac os or windows os. Thanks a lot to all that attempted to help me.

glad you got it working …
