    This Worked!  The following worked with 10.6.8 and a macbook air.  Use the HP Setup Assistant software. The set up will recognize the 3055 via usb, I didn't change the name it gave the 3055 (don't know if that matters).  The HP Director software will scan with usb connection.  I still used the HP 3032 driver (the only one available) to print.  I haven't tried to fax but that can be done mannualy on the 3055.  So in summary use USB, the hp setup assistant sofware and then use the HP Director to scan. The software is bad, but it works.  I hope this helps.

    However, before I do, is uninstalling Rosetta easy to do?

    No, it is not easy to uninstall. However, there is no reason to do that. It takes up very little space on your HD & in no way interferes with any software that doesn't require it.

    It is very easy to uninstall Rosetta (with the proper directions), but there is very little point to uninstalling it in Snow Leopard, once it is there!

     

    To the OP:  Very simply:  Rosetta was written by Apple from third party software that Apple licensed.  Apple migrated from the PowerPC CPU platform that it had used from the mid-1990's until the Intel CPU platform in 2006, and Rosetta allowed Mac users to continue to use their library of PPC software transparently in emulation.

     

    However, Apple's license to continue to use this technology expired with new releases of OS X commencing with Lion (and now Mountain Lion).  While educational efforts have been made over the last 6 years, the fact is that Rosetta was SO successful that many users were caught unaware UNTIL they upgraded to Lion or Mountain Lion.

     

    Rosetta continues to work in Macs running Snow Leopard (and Leopard and Tiger) and in later versions of OS X (Lion and Mountain Lion) when Snow Leopard is installed in a virtualization program called Parallels.

    Thanks, but do you mean that you had no trouble installing the HP software (from the LJ 3055 Installation CD) under 10.6.8?  That was not my experience -- it would not install.  It was at that point that I contacted HP, which was a waste of time and proved to be of no help whatever.

     

    In the end, after moving up the 'chain of experts' (who don't seem to know very much at all) HP simply maintained that no driver that supported the 3055's scan and fax features had been created, that only printing was supported under Snow Leopard, and that there were no 'workarounds' available to circumvent that.

     

    Did you mean that you were able to install the HP software using Rosetta?
