plustek_pp scanner + sarge

mickfp
I'm having trouble getting a Plustek 4831P scanner to work with sarge.
There's an Epson printer daisy-chained off the scanner which works with
CUPS. Both worked with Redhat 7.3.

Any help would be appreciated - I've run out of ideas.

conf files, debugs, etc:

mick@dell933 $ dmesg|grep parport
parport: PnPBIOS parport detected.
parport0: PC-style at 0x378 (0x778), irq 7, using FIFO
[PCSPP,TRISTATE,COMPAT,EPP,ECP]
parport0: Printer, EPSON Stylus COLOR 460
lp0: using parport0 (interrupt-driven).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
mick@dell933 $ scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

--> ECP could be a problem, but let's see.

--> daisy-chaining might also be a problem...

But assuming, that this all worked for you in with RH7.3 it should be
okay.

Okay - so there is your problem! The access rights need to be tweaked for the parallel
port device.
Check
ls -l /dev/parport*

you should have something like:
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     root      99,   0 2003-10-02 22:46 /dev/parport0

Hope this helps
Gerhard
