Hi Luca,

I've seen the rest of this thread (up to 2020-04-15) and seen that you
already solved this.  Good!

However, I'd also like to point out the Debian Buster has changed the
udev rules big time.  Until stretch these used to set up the USB device
for read/write access by users of the scanner group.  Now they're
mucking around with sessions and seats and what not.  I haven't wrapped
my head around that, yet, but just wanted to point that and a related
issue[0] out here on the list.
