First find out if it really is a permission problem. Run
sane-find-scanner and "scanimage -L" as root. If that works but fails
as normal user, it's a permission problem.

Then check the way your distribution sets up permissions.
sane-backends comes with some files for using with hotplug and udev,
but they are not installed automatically. So usually the distribution
package authors install these files. Documentation on how this works
should come with your distribution.
