It was time to solve my HP scanning problem on OSX Yosemite. My HP LaserJet CM1312 MFP – multifunction printer is getting a bit old, or at least HP’s support is falling by the wayside. Don’t bother with the HP software as it’s for 10.7. It did work at one point on this laptop but then totally gave up.
I spent too long trying to find new drivers that enable scanning, with no luck, until I found Vuescan. It’s a free trial (with watermark). I’m sure it supports lots of scanners, just get it and see before paying.
After a $29 Paypal and 7MB download I was scanning instantly – didn’t even have to point it to my printer.
