[sane-devel] Parallel as non root

Good evening 

I thought i had it made.
Xsane recognised the scanner and i was in business..so i thought.

In the archives there is a  letter addressing just that.

I changed owner and chmod  the files as suggested.
Then when i tested SANE_DEBUG_MUSTEK_PP=255 xsane in non root mode 
i had a  surprise.
Gtk-WARNING **: This process is currently running setuid or setgid.
This is not a supported use of GTK+. You must create a helper
program instead. For further details, see:


Refusing to initialize GTK+.

Running xsane by itself also returns this unpleasant warning.

So where do i go from now ? 
Is this fixed in the new sane 1.0.5 ? Will a new frontend fix this ?

Sincere thanks 

Richard Hebert
