I just ran a new test with the printer already plugged in during boot - the
scanner worked fine. However since there is no definition line for the
printer in the udev rules file this is perhaps not a surprise.

As above - printer is hooked up to laptop which is then booted - scanning
works fine. The printer is not set up on that machine.
