I have an HP 2200C USB scanner. I am running "unstable" I installed sane and xsane. When I turn the scanner on, sane-find-scanner finds it when launched as root. The problem is when I launch xsane as root, I find the scanner and may scan, but when doing it as a simple user no device is found. I guess it's a matter of permission. I tried to find what was the device but did not find it. So: What is the scanner device? There is no /dev/usb/scanner*, or no /dev/*scanner*... (the scanner is power supplied) -- A powerfull GroupWare, CMS, CRM, ECM: CPS (Open Source & GPL). Opengroupware, SPIP, Plone, PhpBB, JetSpeed... are good: CPS is better. http://www.cps-project.org for downloads & documentation. Free hosting of CPS groupware: http://www.objectis.org.

Assuming it's using libusb, check the output of sane-find-scanner; for example:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x010a [Perfection1640]) at libusb:001:004

means it can be found at:
