Okay, now this is "scary".
Both xsane and Simple Scan work locally.
I can not get saned to work, UNLESS, I edit /etc/group
and add the following to root
Without it, I get
$ xsane net:localhost:epkowa:interpreter:001:007
Access to resource has been denied
Now what am I doing wrong? Must saned have root privileges?
I just caught this:
$ ps -eo pid,user,group,args --sort user | grep cups
5005 root root /usr/sbin/cupsd -l
CUPS "is" running as root. So is it okay to add
saned to root's group?
No, of course not, that's a huge security hole. Just because cups does
it is no indication that saned should.
The problem could well be that the user saned does not have access to
your scanner. So check that saned is a member of whichever group can
access your scanner device. This may be 'scanner'.
find /dev -iname \*scanner\*
Please keep this on the list.
What do the commands
lsusb -s 001:007
ls -l /dev/bus/usb/001/007
