Re: using PDC in a combined Win / Linux envirement...

This post seems helpful, although I haven't tried setting this up myself:

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

One more thought. cpg, could you try deleting (or moving) the rule you made, and reinstalling the scanner server? I think I've got an install script that will mostly automate the process, making it much easier on people. I've added what I did to the wiki, so you can take a look before running it.

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

Yeah, I hadn't thought of that. You could try adding apache to the printer group, although my /dev/bus/usb/ device was in the root group. It DID add a printer alias as well, but that was the LP group. You could add a second alias to the udev rule that's a copy of the first that adds a printer device...

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

Nope - that's it. Thanks for cleaning up the formatting! Let me know if it works for you. If someone has better script, grep, awk, and sed abilities than I do, they could probably parse the USB ID document and make a huge list of all the known scanners in the file. Then, to install, you'd just have ...

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

OK, I updated the wiki again - my system is up again, so I could actually test it and I found a couple of bugs with the old way. This way works on my system, and it doesn't get overwritten if udev gets updated, which is a plus. :)

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

Not that I know of, but my knowledge of Samba is really limited. Also, one other thing I should add - some scanners (like mine) need an extra package installed over and above the normally installed SANE-backend. I have an HP all-in-one printer, and it required me to install the libsane-hpaio package...

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

sorry about the drive. that is why i do not like or recommend using volumes, even as they are convenient. It's my fault for going with the default Fedora partitioning scheme. I've added a guide in the Wiki that SHOULD work - I was using a slightly different technique, in that mine was just RW for e...

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

Ugh... looks like further work will be delayed - my dog knocked the external drive off my desk, which then died. Since it was part of a volume with the internal drive, I'll have to rebuild, and I don't have time for that right now.

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

Yeah, root access is a big security hole. I've found an answer that works for me, but I don't know how to generalize it... :) Basically, I ended up editing the /lib/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules file, to make my scanner device get added as mode 0666 (read and write for all users). To do that, I...

Re: Linux Scanner Server testing

I still haven't had a chance to hook my scanner up yet, but it looks like a scanner permission problem, which should be able to be fixed by altering the udev rules. (See http://www3.sane-project.org/README.linux and http://reactivated.net/writing_udev_rules.html). I'll keep working on it, and post t...
