FWIW, the XSane thingy worked fairly well for me with my last all-in-one
(using the HP driver bundled with Debian).  It definitely worked much
better than with the crappy software they provided for Windows (I got
the impression that in the Windows world, HP expected you to buy some
other scanner software in order to get anything but the bare minimum
functionality).  [ Note: that was more than 10 years ago, with
a cheap&slow all-in-one (including ADF for the scanner) which
nevertheless served me well while it lasted (5 years or so).  ]
