sane and libusb
I try to get my scanner running with gentoo. It works fine with SuSE.
Setup is sane-backends compiled with libusb. hotplug is enabled.
sane-find-scanner detects the scanner, scanimage -L not, even when running
the command as root.
Following 'man sane-usb' I put the following line into /etc/fstab:
'usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs devmode=0666,noauto 0 0'
I even tested it with supplying the devguid-option in fstab, but always
the device-file in /proc/bus/usb/001/00x has the permission 644 and owner
Under SuSE the entry in /etc/fstab is;
'usbdevfs /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs
devuid=0,devgid=105,devmode=0660,noauto 0 0' and /proc/bus/usb/001/00x has
the permission 660 and ownership (root.camera), guid 105 = camera.
Any hints how the setup hotplug/libusb?
Just to mention that Umax ASTRA2200SU doesn't work well with the kernel driver,
so I have to use libusb access to the scanner.
