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?

Looks like I've been barking up the wrong tree. It seems that USB scanner support doesn't use udev at all.

According to http://www.exactcode.de/oss/avision/index.html the "avision" backend should provide at least limited functionality for your scanner. See "man sane-avision" for details (you'll need to have the sane-backends package installed).

P.S. Please don't post HTML to this mailing list.
