Hi Terje,
help is in sight. Your scanner promotes itself as a processor. What you have to
do, is as follows

1.) download the patchfile I am going to attach to this bug-report
(55-libsane.rules.original.patch)
2.) become root, go to /etc/udev/rules.d
patch -p0 < /home/<LOCATION-DIRECTORY>/55-libsane.rules.original.patch

If I didn't write something the wrong way, things ought to work. After a
reboot, you scanner should be detected and work as user. /dev/sg4 ought to
depict different permissions than now, the group should be "lp" after reboot.

I will provide a patch for openSUSE during the next few days. If this does not
work, we have to debug further, can only be a typo.

Hope this helps
take care



Dieter
