so. .two days back, I finally managed to install and make an HP scanner work. http://racoon97.blogspot.com/2009/04/install-hp-scanjet-g2410-scanner-on.html

yesterday, i upgraded to karmic kola, and followed the instructions as i did earlier. but this time, xsane gives this error:

failed to open 'hp2400:libusb:002:002'
access to resource has been denied

what exactly is wrong?

i scoured around the web for solutions.

it seems there's no 'scanner' group in karmic koala neither is there a 45-libsane.rules file. do i need to create both to get my scanner working in 9.10?

^did none of those.

just followed the instructions here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=3830897&postcount=5

altho, after modifying it displayed two scanners. one hp2400 and the other genesys.
