I have a Photosmart C5180 connected via USB. According to that site, it should do everythign except fax (which in this case makes sense due to the fact that it doesn't have a Fax).
Scanning is important to me at the moment and I dislike having to boot back into windows to do so.
For kicks, to make sure I'm using the right command settings for scanning, do you happen to know all the correct settings?

I gave up trying to setup the K80xi in FC and installed another distro on that specific machine.
Here's what did work on that other machine with the different distro:
set up the drivers with the hp:/usb...foomatic hpijs.
If that doesn't work (didn't on the FC I was trying to setup I am not sure what else you could do in FC. I would suggest upgrading but if evertything else is working OK you maybe asking for problems.
You are using Gnome? I am on KDE.
Does lpinfo -v show the device? It probably will did on the FC setup I was trying, it just would not work.
Did you do your initial install with kde you may want to try Gnome and see if you have the same problems. FC is a Gnome distro. May help. Seems KDE is not a full implementation and could cause some problems from some sites I have researched. Like I said with a true KDE distro the printer I was trying to use in FC just worked.
there are steps that need to be followed in setting up a hp multifuction device if you go to the http://hpoj.sourceforge.net/ there are setup instructions there. You probably don't need more software just see if you can run through the docs to starting the software I remember having to start some programs in the background in order for scanning utils to work.
