I copied the libsane.rules and belong to the group scanner. Therefore
usually I don't need root rights. But I retest a non working
functionality always again with root privileges.

On my Fedora 17, 75 dpi flatbed lineart does only work with root
privileges, while all other scan modes (including 75 dpi flatbed grey
and color) work without root-privileges. Cf. pixma.log and
pixma.root.log, each containing the xsane start and one 75 dpi lineart
scan attempt as user (pixma.log) and as root (pixma.root.log).
