Nope, you didn't; because if so you had discovered the "scangearmp" 
utility earlier ;-P

No, no, no... I mean, don't do that manually, use "udev" rules as the 
forum post states, just don't read the instruction so literally, try to 
mimic what it says but making your own conclusions.

There has to be a file ("/lib/udev/rules.d/60-libsane.rules") in your 
system (this file in included within the package "libsane"), you only 
have to make the modifications in there as the post says. If you already 
did it so, please post here (or upload elsewhere) the full content of 
that file so we can check.

needs some fresh meat to feed its beast >>>:-)
