    I did check the permissions on the device. I do run xvscan as
    a regular user and it's not setuid or anything. The permissions
    on the device right now are 666.

    I did try the -d hp:/dev/sg/10 just now and it says:
    scanimage: open of device hp:/dev/sg/10 failed: Invalid argument

    I also tried it as root to make sure it's not a permissions
    issue and it returned the same error.

    I did also check to see what /dev/sg/10 points to and that looks ok:
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root other 48 Nov 28 11:34 /dev/sg/10 ->

    xvscan uses /dev/scanjet which is a symlink to /dev/sg/10
