Yes, as in my second post, a - before the a, a - before the G and a comma , between lp and scanner.

The password isn't shown, you'll have to type in your userpassword (the password which you use to login on your computer). Just type it in and press enter. There will only be an errormessage if you typed the wrong password.

mh, it didn't work, did you get any errormessages?

You could try
Code:
sudo scanimage -L
and post the output here.

Well, the usermod command is independent of the scanner. But the scanimage command can only work if the device is plugged in.

Well, then it is configured correctly! The driver is installed.

Only question is if you can use the scanner as a normal user, could you please open xsane and try to scan? if it does not recognize the scanner, you'll have to add your user to the lp and scanner group which you've tried already.

Well, it is a permission problem. The user must be member of lp and scanner in order to get the permission to connect to the device.

You should once again try to add the user to both groups. Here is how this is done: http://www.cyberciti.biz/faq/ubuntu-add-user-to-group/

ahh, question: your users name is flyerdan69 if I understood correctly?

Code:
whoami
will show you the username.

this username has to be used at the end of the usermod command.
Code:
usermod -a -G lp,scanner username
substitute username with the name whoami shows.
