My scanner does not  works until I make a symbolic link /dev/scanner pointing to /dev/sg0
As I asked on other help forums this is due to missing udev rules.

Is it possible to add this definition there?

dell:/home/tata# lsscsi -v
[0:0:5:0]    scanner CANON    IX-03035B        2.01  -       
  dir: /sys/bus/scsi/devices/0:0:5:0  [/sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1e.0/0000:02:08.0/host0/target0:0:5/0:0:5:0]
It is SCSI scanner from Canon, typ CanoScan 300. This is a bit older machine but still working very well.

Thank you for tips.
