xsane as non root with parallel printer(canon fb630p)


I have a parallel port scanner, a canon fb630p that works fine as root.

I would like to run xsane as non-root user if possible.

I found some threads that suggested changing permissions for /dev/parport0
but I checked and I don't have this file. The documentation for sane only has information about running as non-root for usb/scsi devices(AFAIK). I couldn't find anything for parallel.

The system in question is running Vector linux 5.9 Gold which is based on Slackware 12 I think.

I am a member of the lp and scanner groups.
Also as root 'scanimage -L' gives me:

Code:
device `canon_pp:0x378' is a CANON FB630P flatbed scanner
What can I do to make this work?
