Except this information is wrong in modern distros.  Permissions are
regulated by udevd or systemd depending on the distro. If you follow
the instructions on that page, the permissions change will either be
temporary or overridden.

Is this a scanner that was just added to the support list?  If so, and
if Ubuntu's distro package is also failing to set it up properly, it
may be missing a udev or systemd rule (not sure which Ubuntu uses) to
make the device accessible to the console user.

Of course, this is all assuming it's the actual problem... or the only one.

What are the permissions of /dev/bus/usb/002/006?  And what are the
user's groups set to?


This is assumin ghtis is the actul problem
