Comment 4 for bug 229343

I have to manually set permissions to the scanner device to be able to allow remote users to use the scanner.

sudo chown root:saned /dev/bus/usb/001/002 && sudo chmod g+rw /dev/bus/usb/001/002

you need to replace the 001/002 with your own devices address, you can find this by issues

scanimage -L

and pulling the numbers from that. Any ideas on how to make this automatic? a terminal solution would be nice because i'm running server edition with no GUI.

Thanks!
