    I use this printer/scanner on an Ubuntu computer and a Windows (company supplied) laptop. The printer function works great on both. The scanning function on the Windows machine is great with sharp images. The linux scans are not nearly as sharp (even straight lines are fuzzy) and the generated files are much larger than the same document scanned with the Windows laptop.

    Hi stuggling to get the scanner function working on this, tried xsane, simple scan and hplip, none can see the scanner, any ideas?

    • AMD_Fan says:

      Is the HP Officejet Pro 6830 shown in the “lsusb” output?
      Is it connected to an USB 2.0 port?
      I realized this week that one of my scanners can not be accessed by Sane if connected to an USB 3.0 port. I had to attach an USB 2.0 Hub as an adapter.
