... well, at least under Ubuntu, the command above intended to add the saned user to the scanner group is not correct. It should be
usermod -a -G scanner username
and if you followed the guide and either had or created a user called saned, then username should really be saned.
If you get this wrong, everything appears to be OK initially, and you can even telnet to verify that inetd listens on the right port and saned logs to your system logs, but the saned user will not have access to the scanner hardware, and thus cannot even list the printers right.
