My scanner is recognised when I log in as ROOT, but it is not recognised when I log in as my username.
Does anybody have any suggestions on how I can overcome this problem.

It would be extremely helpful if you could let us all know the following information:fc5.i

What version of Fedora Core do you have installed?

What version of xsane do you have installed?

What is the make and model of your scanner?

In reply to the above request:
My version of Fedora Core is 5.
My version of xsane is 0.991-4.fc5.i386 , and
Make and model of my scanner is CANON - CanoScan N640P flatbed scanner.

Thanks for your help, but I have resolved my problem.
I needed to change Permission for /dev/parport0, to enable read & write for others.
