All root/root/644.   That's how Mandrake installed them!

I've made user david a member of the saned group, in case that was the issue, 
but it's not helped.

Yes, as far as sane-find-scanner is concerned.

It matches the details in the artec_eplus48u backend file. On a sudden thought 
I just did
grep 0x4003 *
in the sane.d directory, and confirmed that *only* the artec_eplus48u file 
lists this vendor/device combination.

There's nothing which needs scanning just now, so if you could try it when 
you're set up that would be good.
