Hello guys ;-) I have a new problem installing a Brother DCP-130C multifunctions printer. The printer works fine, but impossible to configure the scanner with Xsane. Wheb i run Xsane, i got a message "Error opening 'brother:bus1;dev4': I/O error on this material" (it's my translation of the french message, i hope it's clear for you ;-) ) An idea? Thanks in advance ;-) Luc

It seems it's not possible

It seems it's not possible for the first post! But not really important... There's a link "edit" on replies, but not for the first ;-) Have a good day

Just a little suggestion for the webmasters... It would be a good thing having possibilities to edit the first post of a discussion to write [resolved] in the tittle of the post... (it's just a suggestion ;-) )

Thanks a lot for your

Thanks a lot for your answer, but i found a simple solution: When using Xsane as SU the first time have been created some directories .sane/subdirectories... First time i tried to chmod 777 this directories and content, but it didn't run... The only thing to do was to remove the directory .sane and all his content, re-use Xsane in no SU mode, and it's running properly... Sincerely real thanks for your help... And i think you'll see me again on this super forum ;-)

Ok Try This...

Do exactly what Pablo has suggested, but add the command "sudo" in front of the "useradd -g your_user_name scanner" Thus: sudo useradd -g your_user_name scanner Remember that ypu always need administrative rights when you change major things, and "sudo" does that for you. Alternatively, make sure you run Pablo's command in a root terminal (or su as you say) Let's see...

@Harley: Thanks for your

@Harley: Thanks for your idea, but it doesn't run! @Pablo: Thanks for your idea. At the beginning of running xsane it seems to run properly, but when going out, i have 3 messages: "error creating file, no permissions". I tried to run Xsane from a console (not SU), it's the same and it doesn't tells me the files or directories where i have no permissions... I know Google and Ubuntu forums, but as my english is poor, it's more difficult for me to understant answers, and on french forums i didn't find any answer (at this time). But i continue, whent i want something, i find it ;-) @picothinker: The two links you give to me are speaking of configuring printer, but not scanner... Thanks a lot ;-) I continue seraching... Thanks one more time (and it makes me work my english :-)))))))))))))))) )

Thank you all, il will test

--has a great list that I always check for printing on Linux. Looking around there, I don't see a DCP-130C listed, but here is information on a DCP-135C. http://openprinting.org/show_printer.cgi?recnum=Brother-DCP-135C There is some discussion on the DCP-130C in their forums: http://forums.linux-foundation.org/read.php?24,1321 hope this helps

Check groups

I suggest you do the following, which worked in my case: Check the groups you (as a user) are member of: $groups You have to be member of "scanner" group. If not, as superuser: #useradd -g your_user_name scanner As I've said, this worked for me, but I don't know what would have been the solution otherwise. Anyway, google, and ubuntu forums are very helpful for these kind of issues. Cheers Pablo

You have to add your user to the group that handles scanning. I cannot tell you which one, because My system is a bit mixed at the moment from testing stuff... Just check the groups your user is assigned to using the "Desktop" => "Administration" => "Users and Groups" Hope it helps,

It's running by using su
