        Yes, it is only a permission problem, but where? We have not
        been able to find the answer to that question!

        Both installs were done from the Fedora-16/64 bit XFCE Live Spin
        [USB flash drive] and will work normally as root.

        Xsane will scan from user if the computer is booted from the
        flash drive but not from the same instance installed on the hard

        The solution is probably simple enough but finding where to fix
        the permissions is not simple.

        We have spent a lot of time on this and I have about given up,
        resigned to only running xsane as root when I need the scanner.
        If you have any suggestions I will be very happy to try whatever
        you suggest ...

        Thank you for your interest,
