On my SuSE9.1,<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/etc/sane.d/saned.conf is like inetd.conf - it has IP
addresses and the like. I added that line to<nobr> <wbr></nobr><TT>/etc/sane.d/epson.conf </TT>
which caused the Epson to be recognized. But!
Still no joy. xsane gives me "no devices"
when running as a normal user -- and the hotplug
script never seems to get executed (set -x in<nobr> <wbr></nobr><TT>/etc/hotplug/usb/epson_scanner</TT> and...

Oh, d'oh!

Forgot to say "<TT>set +x<nobr> <wbr></nobr>/etc/hotplug/usb/epson_scanner</TT>"
OK, works fine as normal user now!

One other thing I wanted to tell you about...
Other computer runs legacy lpd/lprng but installed
cups to drive the Epson. How to make them talk?
smbspool on the legacy (SuSE 8.0 with legacy
lpd).
