I have never tested this, so I cannot offer a definitive answer.
I believe that the 2P is a SCSI scanner. If this is true and you have
a guide to escape codes used by the 2P it would not be very difficult
to modify the IIc/IIcx driver to support the 2P. If the 2P uses a
compatible subset of the escape codes that the IIc uses it may work
It worked nearly out of the box: I just had to add the code C1790A for
the ScanJet IIp so the driver thinks it's a ScanJet IIc/cx. Monochrome
and Greyscale works, the dithered mode doesn't. The doc's don't list
the scancodes... Do I have to order additional docs from HP ?
Do you plan to port pint to solaris some day ?
Now i'm trying to get easy-pint to compile (wasn't successful so far...)
