I can confirm this by trying "cat /dev/sga" as root -- still permission denied.
The device is probed and configured properly, and shows up in /proc/scsi/scsi.
Incidentally, I notice that /dev/sga only allows opens with O_RDWR flags on.
If you try to open it O_RDONLY or O_WRONLY, it gives EPERM.
Has sane changed in some way to only open the device read or write only? :)
I don't have the source on hand to look right now, as i deleted it a while
back in a fit of confusion over which version of gtk+ and god knows what
else goes with which version of xscanimage and doesn't conflict with which
version of gimp. :)
