the installation of the SAMsung printer software for
the printer ml-2250 (FILE: 20060711101742437_UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz
from the SAMSUNG website) disables the usage of the USB scanner CANON
LIDE 30 by non root users

I'am running fc5, and before installing this SAMSUNG printer driver I
could scan as normal user without problem. But after installing
0060711101742437_UnifiedLinuxDriver.tar.gz, scanning was no more possible:


insmod: can't read
'/lib/modules/2.6.18/kernel/drivers/mfpportctrl/mfpport.ko': No such
file or directory

Starting xsane/scanimage as root was possible on the other hand.

After uninstalling the driver, I could again start xsane without
problems as normal user.

The problem is Kernel independent: running the Vanilla kernel 2.6.18 and
FC5 kernel both produce the same error results.
