YaST setup is trying to configure equipment so that normal user can operate it. It can see your normal group called users and set all permissions as appropriate, but if you are logged in as root than it will be all set that only root can operate equipment.

OK, I tried the following steps:

  1. disconnected the scanner
  2. logged on with my normal user account
  3. started YaST
  4. gave it the root password
  5. invoked the scanner configuration screen
  6. deleted the entry for the scanner and clicked Finish
  7. shut down YaST
  8. re-connected the scanner
  9. started YaST again
 10. gave it the root password
 11. invoked the scanner screen again
 12. YaST detected the scanner
 13. selected the line for the scanner
 14. clicked Edit
 15. confirmed that the correct driver was selected
 16. clicked Next
 17. clicked Finish
 18. closed YaST

I still can't see the scanner as a normal user. Is this what you were recommending I do? Did I miss a step?
