scanner permissions [suse 10] problem
I've recently installed SUSE 10, and am having trouble getting my Canon FS4000US (USB film scanner) working. Linux itself (that is SANE) has no support, wheras Vuescan does, which I would be using anyway.
The system (sane) recognises the Scanner, as does YAST (I suppose they're doing the same). This works both if logged in as root or user.
Now Vuescan can't access (doesn't find) the scanner if logged in as user, while there is no problem if logged in as root. Additionally changing the write permission of /proc/bus/usb/xxx/yyy (the scanner) enables user to use Vuescan as well.
this is a bit uncomfortable as I've got to log in as root to do so, and unpluging the scanner or rebooting requires the procedure again.
I've already found numerous threads on the internet, but somehow all these focus around changing the hotplug configuration and don't help (me).
One solution would be to change the write permisson of the scanner whenever it is plugged in. these other solutions seem to be doing something like that, just don't work. they are all focused around sane ...
But since I'm stupid, I don't know how to do that ... myself.
And ... that can't be the correct solution can it?
any help welcome!!
Thanks in advance!
