You probably just need a local udev rule to recognise the scanner and
make the link /dev/scanner0 -> sg0. That will result in the correct
permissions being set for /dev/sg0 and then xsane should be able to
"see" the scanner.

Please post the output of:
$ udevinfo -a -p `udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sg0`


udevinfo -a -p `udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sg0`

couldn't get the class device

OK, try just:
$ udevinfo -q path -n /dev/sg0

What messages appear in /var/log/messages when you plug the scanner in?

Can you also post the output of:
$ ls -l /dev/s*

And can you see if the scanner will work if you're logged in as root?


No,it does noy work as root.

kudzu --probe shows the following:

class: OTHER
bus: USB
detached: 0
driver: hpusbscsi
desc: "Hewlett-Packard ScanJet 5300c/5370c"
usbclass: 0
usbsubclass: 0
usbprotocol: 0
usbbus: 1
usblevel: 1
usbport: 1
usbdev: 2
vendorId: 03f0
deviceId: 0701
usbprod: Hewlett Packard ScanJet 5300C/5370C

hwbrowser lists "Scanner" as device :  /dev/sg0

But there is no /dev/sg0 in /etc/fstab or in the /dev/ directory.

I'm not familiar with "udev" and don't know if these differences are normal?
