Scanner not detected by Sane: Another Issue

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – I had this same problem recently under Fedora 17, and evidently my issues were different that that of other threads. It took me a few hours to figure this out, hence, I post my issues and solution here so that it might help others. -- I have a SCSI Scanner, an Epson Expression 636. After migrating from CentOS 5.6 to Fedora 17, xsane would display "no devices available". Previously on the same machine with CentOS, xsane would find two devices, a scanner and a webcam. Because a post somewhere said that it could be device permission problems, I also tried xsane (HowTos)
