At which device the scanner is found? scanimage -L will list the
device. If it's /dev/usb/scanner*, just change the permmissions of
that device. If it's libusb:001:001 or similar, /proc/bus/usb/001/001
is the right one. However, those permissions will go away once you
replug the device or reboot. One way is to mout the usbfs writeable
for everyone. That's explained in man sane-usb.
