Guash? Xsane?

I just reinstalled Gimp 1.2.3. I have xv on my system. How do I get Guash on my xtn menu?

Also, Xsane warns users not to run as root. Unfortunately that is the only way I can get it to show up in Gimp. If I run as an ordinary user I have to fire up Xsane separately. the acquire popup menu shows screen shot and xsane dvice dialog but not xsane proper. The dvice dialog can't find the device. The device, /dev/usbscanner is there with permissions of rwrwrw.

I don't know anything about Guash, but...

Have you tried making the xsane executable suid? I don't know whether that is the proper way to fix your problem or not. The executable on my system doesn't seem to be suid.

On my system (Linux 2.4.13-ac8), the USB scanner is /dev/usb/scanner*, and only has 774 permissions. I think that is sufficient because you don't need to write data to the scanner device, only read from it (mine anyway).
