Subject: [gentoo-user] scanning using the sheet feeder (HP 8600 + xsane)

I have an hp 8600 all-in-one and use net-print/hplip.
Printing is fine.

I use xsane for scanning, which also works well ...

... except I can't figure out how to use the sheet feeder for multipage
scanning.

I can select multipage and can the scan each page singly and hit
"save multipage file".  This works.  But I can't put say 10 pages in the
feeder, hit something, get coffee, and find a 10 page document on my
computer.

In case it is relevant, I run gentoo stable / gnome-3 / systemd.

thanks in advance,
allan
