I just purchased an HP Envy 5642. I can print to it from Linux without a problem but I don't see a way to scan. When I hit scan on the printer it tells me to turn on the appropriate HP application in Windows which I am not running. I followed the HP Linux links for downloading hplip (HP Linux Imaging & Printing) but I actually found that I already have that program instealled.

How can I scan from the HP Envy 5642 without having to scan to email or scan to flash drive. I want to be able to scan directly to my Linux Mint OS.
