In the meantime (without doing anything):
device `pixma:04A91908' is a CANON Canoscan 9000F multi-function
It works as user too, after changing /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules

After reading your explanations I don't understand, why scanimage
recognizes the scanner after some time / days? I don't see a permission
problem in this case or something changes the permissions automatically.
I compiled with default values. While it didn't work for a while with
Ubuntu 12.04, it works now without problems, as I described in my
BTW I have a Nikon LS50 too. How do I compile drivers for the Canon
9000F and the Nikon LS50, but not the other drivers?
