So after removing my printer from the configuration menu, then going to hp printing tool and adding it then, I'm able to scan and print. Yay! Xsane works great. Here's my problem now:
On my fiance's desktop, also running the latest pclos 2011.6, the xsane window freezes for about 4 minutes while "scanning for devices". It then opens fine. On mine, it's nearly instant, what gives?
Addendum: When I go to set up scanner in the PCLOS control center, it crashes and says abnormally exited.
Addendum 2: The scannerdrake in PCLOS Control Center does not crash, it just takes 4 minutes to open. I feel like it's getting timed out somewhere and keeps trying to scan.... is there a way to clear everything.
Solution: After reinstalling everything I could find in synaptic with absolutely no luck, I simply took the entire /etc/sane.d/ directory into a tar, transferred it to my fiance's desktop and overwrote (after making a cautious backup) the /etc/sane.d/ folder she had. After a reboot, everything worked smoothly. I guess it was some setting buried deep down. Works now though :-).
Great Printer/Scanner/All in one for those that are interested by the way and works great over wireless :-).
