FWIW I had a Canoscan FB320P.  I would have to change permissions
on /dev/lp0 for each session I used it.  I used scanimage -L as root and
then as user to check if it was found.  That model had too many I/O
errors which caused it to stop mid scan requiring a power off/on cycle.
Replaced it with a USB scanner.  Much less hassles.
