"There is a problem with scanner device permissions on Ubuntu. Regular users (UID>999) can access libsane applications like Xsane and Simple Scan without problems. Linux Scanner Server, which is running in Apache as www-data, can't access them without a chmod o+rw on each scanner device. Nobody seems to know how the permissions work so this has to be fixed manually in a terminal. This is not n00b friendly so I created a GUI application that automatically changes the permissions of every scanner device.
