Re: Can VMware ever talk to USB scanners?


Check the right of your driver in /dev on your Lenny.
The user who run VMware need to have an access rx on the driver.

No, I haven't gotten around to that.  I was pretty happy with VMware except
for the scanner.  In the Win98 days, I used to like Win4Lin, until that
product went down the tubes.  Maybe I'll have to switch again.
