Unfortunately, I don't have a /dev/scanner or /dev/usb/scanner device as
listed in /etc/security/console.perms.d/50-default.perms; this scanner doesn't
seem to do whatever it needs to do to create one.
It works, though -- I can scan as root.
The problem is that unless the permission is changed, access to USB
devices are limited to root. I am not sure what scanner you have,
but it looks like it is not one of the ones covered in
60-libsane.rules. You may want to follow the instructions at the top
of that file to add it in. You can get the idVender and idProduct
from /proc/bus/usb/devices, or by using lsusb. After there is a rule
to create the scanner symlink, console.perms should take care of
setting the correct permissions.
