How can I determine what driver is being used?  How can I configure the
correct driver?  I combined the information from several web sites to
do the configuration, but I did not see anything about hpusbscsi related

Yes,  a negative image is an inverted image, i.e. black and white are
interchanged.  I tried several scanmodes, and finally found that I could
get a positive, non-inverted image using lineart mode.  I sent another

With scanmode gray, at one point I got black on gray images, i.e., the
text was black and the background, that should have been white. was
