[sane-devel] saned to solve root issue ?
Thu, 9 Aug 2001 21:01:28 -0400
Well it's been a while since i wrote and yet i havent had any
success using xsane as non root.
Im no programmer but i gave it a good shot.
It semed if i had understood well i had to set saned to run as root.
but then two things pop to mind
1 - Ok first is easy it's how to set saned to run as root
( im an incompetent ..im still trying to figure how to make saned
eun always as root )
2 - Second once it's set how do i use the saned daemon ,how do i call it ?
Keep in mind im no programmer but a simple folk trying to have his
scanner work so i can scan the wife's family photos to put into her
PS as ROOT user i used GIMP and bingo ..it works beautifully
but like Griz mentioned it would be way better to use both as non root.
And Griz dont despair ..there is no actual device .it's a " virtual device "
if i understood correctly , so we did not find any devices to chmod ,
there aint one..
So if anyone can help clarify this both of us would greatly appreciate
Thank you for your patience.
