Comment 13 for bug 229343

Just wanted to point out that using the workaround

sudo chown root:saned /dev/bus/usb/001/002 && sudo chmod g+rw /dev/bus/usb/001/002

did not break printing for me on Ubuntu 8.04 with my multifunction HP Deskjet F4280 like Sandro Mani is stating. Though I have noticed that after certain updates the printer gets 'chowned' back to the defaults, and I have to go back in and update it with the workaround again and again. Also, my scanner has never actually worked it acts like it is going to, but then xsane freezes.

Personally, like Vanessa Ezekowitz, I don't understand why in over a year this problem has not been fixed. Ubuntu 8.04 Server is supposed to be supported for 5 years. So, I'm supposed to use 8.04 for the next 4 years on my server and have to continue to deal with this problem? I say NO, I'm switching to a different server os!!
