20200226 The usual GNU/Linux scanner interface is called sane (Scanner Access Now Easy). An easy to use scanning tool is -, simple, scan. If you have a HP All-in-One scanner (like the HP B110, or others perhaps), and it is connected to the local network by WiFi, then on each computer run:

$ hp-setup

This should find the network connected printer and in addition to setting up printing will also set up the scanner access.

If there is an error relating to the GUI and qt4/qt5 not available, simply use the interactive option:

$ hp-setup -i
