Re: Permissions to access the scanner


Thanks for the help

Xsane is running now, after changing permissions of the "wheel" group of this devices:

netbsd1# chmod g=rw /dev/ugen0*

netbsd1# chmod g=rw /dev/usb[0-7]

Best regards

I can only detect the Epson Perfection 2480 scanner as root:

Can someone help to access the scanner as normal user?

Sometimes I use ktrace to run a program to see what devices it is using.
Try that. Then look at the owner/group and permission of the device
files and your own groups.
