The only way i got xsane to work was as a root user .. but to be able
to get my scanner recognised ... first i had to load the module ppdev
.... this module implements parport0 support apparently ... cause
before module is loaded there is no /dev/parport0 ... but after loading
this module .... you can see the port in /dev .... off course it is
called ... /dev/parport0 ...
As for running xsane as a normal user ... i dont have this working yet
either ... what i have discovered so far is that there are two ways to
1) use libieee1284 support (preferred method i am told)
2) use saned ...
