On my FC 20 64 bit machine with libsane-hpaio-3.13.11-4.fc20.x86_64

I need advice on getting an HP 5590 scanner working. It's listed as being supported by the Sane project:
http://www.sane-project.org/cgi-bin/driver.pl?manu=Hewlett+Packard&model=&bus=usb

It is detected by some commands:

[root@localhost ~]# sane-find-scanner

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (vendor=0x03f0 [Hewlett-Packard], product=0x1705 [hp scanjet scanner]) at libusb:008:002
# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.


However, it isn't detected by xsane or hp-setup or by:



scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

From time to time, I've found that the Fedora hplip binaries wouldn't work properly. Then, I'd install from source, and it would work. It was always a random thing--for example, one install would not work with my all in one, I'd download the source and it would work, then, another F19 install, same printer, it worked without problems. At any rate, their website has installation instructions if you feel like trying it.

I got it to work with a "yum update" followed by a reboot.

I don't know what this fixed. The version of hplip didn't change.

Even the auto document feed feature of the scanner works. You must change the field in xsane beside the picture of the scanner from "flatbed" to "ADF".
