By plugging the printer into USB I managed without problem to get printing working, but I didn't get any scanning: XSane gave error messages and despite the printer looking ok in the Printers dialogue, I found no options for enabling the scanning functions. A temporary hack for scanning was to hook the scanner up to the network, look up the IP address (it can be read out on the printer's config screen) and access http://{printer's ip}/ – each networked HP printer is infact also a mini web-server, offering info, config, scanning etc.
