(In reply to comment #15 from Johannes Meixner)
Can both of you activate the "set -x" line in
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/test_and_set_scanner_access_permissions
and then run it as root as
/usr/lib/YaST2/bin/test_and_set_scanner_access_permissions 2>/tmp/out
and attach /tmp/out text/plain attachments to this bug.

I did this as well...

However after doing so, the scanner (OfficeJet G85) is now available to
non-root. So I cannot reproduce this bug anymore.

To be honest, I don't know exactly what fixed my problem, but it seems like
running /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/test_and_set_scanner_access_permissions fixed the
problem. It could also be that that the security patch + reboot (i.e. restart
hplip) solved the problem. Even though I claimed in comment #12 that the
security patch (alone) did not fix the problem. I may be wrong here.

If you are still interested in the output of the command let me know, but I
don't think it is that interesting anymore since my system works now...
