I have installed an Epson TX105 multifunction printer/scanner in Precise and it works great.
Xsane is driving me insane, though. I can scan as a super user but I cannot scan as a regular user. I assume this should be a problem with permissions but I don't know how to effectively solve it.
I tried to follow instructions in some threads that I found in the forum, but the information seems outdated and it does not apply to 12.04. I did add my account to the sane and scanner groups as suggested there, but still no joy. I also tried
chmod a+w /dev/bus/usb/001/002
but it doesn't work.
I know Xsane if famous for this problem (which should be addressed somehow by the developers because it frustrates its users).
Does anyone know how to solve this problem in 12.04? I know Simple Scan works but I would like to use Xsane instead because it has more advanced options.
