Hi again,

   > (with the ScanJet 2c/cx driver)

   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
   right now.

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...)

Cheers, Jan
