Nope, it is searched by the SANE -> see the above posts -> the libsane-smfp.so.1.0.1 is correctly installed, and SANE can find the library, but it can't load/initialize it ->because the required plugin interface functions are missing.


Thank you for focusing my attention. I did what I should have previous done and
installed the ULD scanner driver on my i386 machine. The backend is linked from
/usr/lib/sane, which SANE does search.

Code: Select all
$ SANE_DEBUG_DLL=5 scanimage -L 2>&1 | grep smfp > scanner.txt
$ cat scanner.txt
[dll] add_backend: adding backend `smfp'
[dll] load: searching backend `smfp' in `/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane:/usr/lib/sane'
[dll] load: trying to load `/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane/libsane-smfp.so.1'
[dll] load: couldn't open `/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane/libsane-smfp.so.1' (No such file or directory)
[dll] load: trying to load `/usr/lib/sane/libsane-smfp.so.1'
[dll] load: dlopen()ing `/usr/lib/sane/libsane-smfp.so.1'
[dll] init: initializing backend `smfp'
[dll] init: backend `smfp' is version 1.0.1
[dll] sane_exit: calling backend `smfp's exit function


Perhaps the difference between my output and capcia's isn't important?

More puzzling is

Code: Select all
$ readelf --dyn-syms /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane/libsane-hpaio.so.1.0.0 | grep hpaio_init
   202: 00004580   101 FUNC    GLOBAL DEFAULT   12 sane_hpaio_init


This is a known working backend on this system.

Your result means, that plugin interface in i386 version of the backend is correctly implemented.

The result reported by brian_p have triggered my attention: how it is possible that i386 version works with sane?

So, I have downloaded full sane project from gitlab, and I've analysed the code again.
The scanimage is using libdll.a (backends-master/backend/dll.c) to load backends, and the backend functions names to be dlopen()-ed are dynamically constructed, based on backend type. Only native SANE backends have static function names: sane_xxxx().
The scanimage uses the dll wrapper to call backend functions using default SANE functions names (previously I've only checked that it calls the sane_init() function -> I've missed the fact that there is a name-wrapper)

The function names in HP ULD backend are correct -> so I must apologize for accusing HP of lacking QA, the SMFP interface is valid

I have also installed the HP drivers on 2 machines: Debian10 64 bit and Debian9 32bit -> in both cases the HP backend driver is correctly loaded and initialized by SANE.

Conclusion:
1. There's something wrong with the capcla's OS -> we have to investigate this case again.
2. I'm an idiot, who have wasted a lot of time for useless research...

Regards.

... definitely the "driverless" solution might work in this case.


Another success for sane-airscan! :D Message #10 at https://bugs.launchpad.net/hplip/+bug/1882390.

That's really fantastic - but still, I would like to see the results for the ULD HP drivers -> because they seem to work with the latest version of Debian system -> ofc, that would require to find a person or a compny who have actually tested this ... (and I don't have the HW to test... )

Well, I had the same issues with this device in Kubuntu 18.04, it was detected and added as a network printer (via wifi), but it wasn't always printing properly (often printed not requested pages with hieroglyphics, wrong driver I guess) and of course the scanner wasn't recognized at all.
The solution was as follows (I guess there won't be any or significant differences in debian), if of course the device is already connected to your network via wifi (preferably with a static ip).
Step 1
Download the driver from HP :
https://support.hp.com/us-en/drivers/selfservice/closure/hp-laser-mfp-130-printer-series/24494378/model/24494385?ssfFlag=true&sku=
Step 2
Unzip the driver, after that a folder named uld is created.
Open a terminal in that location, or cd to the uld folder and install the driver (well the following sudo command has to do with ubuntu, I guess you can run a root terminal in debian)
Code: Select all
sudo ./install.sh

Step 3
After finishing with driver installation, open a browser and go to :
http://localhost:631/
From the web interface either add the printer, or modify it (if already added). The whole purpose is to provide manually the correct ppd file. Follow the steps required (at some point requires username and password) and manually provide the ppd file. The location in Kubuntu was /usr/share/ppd/uld-hp/HP_Laser_MFP_13x_Series.ppd and the last section of course is the ppd file.
Step 4
Copy the libsane-smfp.so file to the correct location (as far as sudo is concerned, same as above), I hope the directories are the same, or find the right ones in your debian installation.
Code: Select all
sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-smfp* /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/

Step 5
Download and install the sane-airscan deb file, choosing your distro, from the following location (I had to download the deb, adding the repository didn't work, since it wasn't retrieving the right key) :
https://software.opensuse.org//download.html?project=home%3Apzz&package=sane-airscan
Step 6
Reboot your pc.

After these steps printer and scanner are working perfectly in my Kubuntu 18.04 installation.
I hope this helps, and please feel free to modify-complete-comment the above, especially if there are differences in the relative debian directories, or same packages are pre-required (for instance in my description I take for granted that the sane related packages are already installed, since they are pre-installed in Kubuntu).
By the way this device is not expected to be supported by hplip. It's actually a Samsung device released under the HP brand and it uses the SPL (Samsung Printing Language).
