I can normally use my scanner as user, but today, after pluggin it in, I can't. Xsane says that no device was found... but if run it as root, there is no problem.

nimrodel:~ # lsusb
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 003 Device 004: ID 04b8:0110 Seiko Epson Corp. Perfection 1650
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 039: ID 0665:5161
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

cer@nimrodel:~> l /dev/bus/usb/003/004
crw-rw-r-- 1 root lp 189, 259 2008-12-01 21:57 /dev/bus/usb/003/004


I disconnect and reconnect the scanner:

Bus 003 Device 005: ID 04b8:0110 Seiko Epson Corp. Perfection 1650

crw-rw-r-- 1 root lp 189, 260 2008-12-01 23:38 /dev/bus/usb/003/005


I don't know why it belongs to root?

There is a program that list to what devices an user has access, but I forget which command it is.

Perhaps...

cer@nimrodel:~> /sbin/resmgr test scanner
user does have access


... but xsane keep saying I have not access.


This has happened to me in the past, and I had to reboot. This time I'll wait to see if we can find out why ;-)
