Thanks for the link. I got the scanner working and BTW, I did do a
google search, but the search parameters I used only returned stuff from
my previous posts.
The reason for the "Att'n Neil Bothwick" in the subject line is because
Neil responded months ago when I had the scanner working the first time,
but could only run xsane as root, not as a normal user. Neil responded
suggesting that I write a udev rule and gave me an example:
I used this to write a udev rule after reading some documentation. Of
course I changed the product and manufacturer in the above line to what
is applicable to my HP C4795. After rebooting, I was able to run xsane
as a normal user. However, when I run it from the command line, a bunch
of messages appear and I'm not sure if there is a problem or if I didn't
write the rule correctly.
This is the message that repeats itself in the terminal window:
(xsane:10566): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with
non-zero page size is deprecated
Do I need to be concerned about this?
