I found a this great post
explaining how to get my canoscan fb630p scanner to work. I still have one (minor?) problem though.
If I execute xsane as root all goes well, but I get a warning telling me it isn't a very good idea to run this app as root (why?), but when I do it as a normal user it won't detect my scanner.
I added myself to the pl group the device belongsa to but that didn't help (not sure why not).
Then I did a 'chown linmix.linmix /dev/parport0' which got me going but now I ran into another problem. It detectis the scanner, but when I do a test scan I get an error message saying: 'failed to create file: permission denied'.
So I did 'chmod 666 /dev/parport0' just in case, but now xsane just hangs and hogs the memory untill I do a force quit.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks in advance,
