Nevertheless I wonder why the workaround which
is shown by YaST (see comment #3) is not simply used:
-----------------------------------------------------------
... you could access
the scanner via the 'saned' as a workaround.
For this workaround choose 'scanning via network'
and select the 'local host configuration'.
----------------------------------------------------------
In particular on a workstation in a trusted network
environment (e.g. when the Suse firewall protects it
from acceess from the external network zone / Internet)
this workaround should cause no security problems.

Hi!

Well, it does eat up resources to have another daemon running. Plus I
personally use a scanning software that does not support network scanners
(vuescan).

Cheers Juergen
