Are you sure that this should work? I don't have a parport scanner but
as far as I know the port is specified by the io address in
mustek_pp.conf. If the correct port and address is listed in the
config file, "scanimage -L" should list your scanner.

I don't think that mustek_pp uses the printer device (/dev/lp0). The
scanner is accessed by its IO port.
That's why you must be root to run the scanner.

As far as I know, there haven't been changes since 1.0.5.
