Hi,

due to a bug in an older version of the libsane package (which is the current one if you are on Debian),
permissions on usb scanners are not set correctly.
A fix/workaround is described here:
https://linux.debian.bugs.dist.narkive.com/NIqXopxb/bug-918358-libsane-amd64-missing-permissions-for-scanner-group-on-usb-device#post2

HTH,
Juergen
