I did a quick test on my HP Photosmart C5180. It works fine, except
there are very few options compared to what appears in the help document
(BTW, at least it *has* a help doc, so kudos for that), i.e. no
bit-depth, image intensity, gamma correction etc. Since I don't know if
this is a bug or a feature, I've refrained from posting to Bodhi for the
moment. Maybe it's limitation of the device, or of the SANE driver.
Xsane complains about a missing ICM profile so maybe that's related.
