Help with Scanner

Its an all in one printer/scanner.
I got it to print and scan fine.

Issue is, i can only launch Skanlite succesfuly only as root.

Any solutions?

Thanks !



to see what groups you’re member of already.

From memory, many scanner interfaces require you to be a member of the ‘lp’ group. You can make the necessary group addition via YaST > Security and Users, or via a terminal with

usermod -G lp <your-user-name>

Would i need to log out/in ?

AFAIK, reconnecting the scanner should be all that is necessary. Have a look at rules files located in /dev/udev/rules.d/ for rules associated with your scanner. Usually, the ‘lp’ group is assigned.

Worked, thanks !
