I am sure that this question has come up before but I was unable to
locate it in the archives. I am running RH6.0 on an Intel system., my
scanner is a Microtek E-6, and I am using an Adaptec 2940UW LVD-2
board. When I run Gimp as root everything is fine I get the scanner and
the PNM"s listed as devices and can scan successfully, however if I run
Gimp as user it only lists the PNM devices, not the scanner. I have
tried to find what permissions to change but have had no luck. I tried
using a symbolic link but also with out luck. Can some one tell me what
permissions to change or what I am doing wrong.

Thank you.
