You must verify that udev is running, do "ps -A | grep udev" in a 
console. It must give something like : 1049 ?  00:00:00 udevd
Then you can verify that the user who try to use the scanner belong to 
the scanner group. Do "grep scanner /etc/* " in a console, it must give 
something like : /etc/group:scanner::93:root,users
