HP Scanner permission issue in RHEL3

Hi all,

I have installed HP 3770 USB Scanner in RedHat Enterprises Linux 3. Its working fine with root user. Whereas i am trying to scan from other user, it says Access Denied. i gave the command "chmod a+rw /proc/bus/usb/001/002". Then, i can scan from user also. But, after replugging the scanner or rebooting the linux, again same issue persist.

How can i set permanent permission & rights for all users...

Thanking you,

Kanagaraj.G

Shalom,

There is an error in /var/log/messages that should tell you what additoinal files need permissions changed.

You might be able to resovle this with the hardware gui.

It is my opinion that you have not changed the permissoins in the correct location and/or there are other files which require permissions changes.

Hi
Until you look in for logs for more info you can always add in /etc/rc.local

chmod a+rw /proc/bus/usb/001/002

Cheers
