#157 closed System Defect (fixed)

File permissions wrong for USB Scanner

Reported by: lme Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: System Configuration Version: 7.0.1
Keywords: scanner usb devfs user permissions skanlite Cc: trac-bugs@…


In PC-BSD 7.01 my USB scanner (Canon LiDE 25) is properly recognized as uscanner0, but the device permissions are not right.
While I can use the scanner by starting skanlite as root, when I start skanlite as a normal user, I get an error message that no scanners were found.
That's because the user doesn't have read/write permissions to /dev/uscanner0.


add path uscanner[0-9]* mode 0660 group operator

to /etc/devfs.conf
should fix that.

We already have some defines setup in /etc/devfs.rules similar to this. I've gone ahead and added this line to /etc/devfs.rules:

add path 'uscan*' mode 666 group operator

I will issue an online here soon which corrects this issue for 7.0.1 users.
