There is nothing about "scanner".

cer@nimrodel:~> getfacl /dev/bus/usb/003/007
getfacl: Removing leading '/' from absolute path names

The above says I have permission as user.


I logged out and in of gnome - still no access.

I added myself to group "lp", then logged out and in of gnome - still no access, as user.

I see that "sane-backends" got updated to "1.0.19-128.2" on "Sat Nov 29 2008", ie, in the interval where the problem started. It is the one from your repo (jsmeix). Reverting it to -48.1 does not work - unless I need to re-login.

Same for "yast2-scanner". No good.

hal was updated the same day to 0.5.11-8.2 (from the updates repo), and udev on Wed Sep 10 2008 to 120-13.1.

nimrodel:~ # /usr/lib/YaST2/bin/test_and_set_scanner_access_permissions
The following models are currently not known to HAL:
USB-ID(hex)=04b8:0110
....


I revert hal. Bingo, it works! I'll open a bugzilla.
