This looks like the default libsane.rules file that comes with the version of 
sane that I downloaded.

I checked that it contained the right information for my scanner (Epson 
Perfection 1260), which it did, but it didn't work for me.

My understanding is that udev checks all the .rules files in 
the /etc/udev/rules.d directory in alphabetical order. My distros rules are 
udev.rules, so libsane.rules would get checked first. I am unclear as to 
whether this is correct or not. If libsane.rules needs to be checked last, 
then I need to do some renaming!

I am currently running without libsane.rules. I added the previously mentioned 
line to the end of my udev.rules.

Does this answer your question?

If you want me to try again in a different order, I can, but not until later 
in the week when I get some time - maybe Friday?
