scanner under user level

I have installed USB scanner in my Enterprise version of linux (ELX). I tried to scan image under normal user level mode but it doesn't give me permission. However I can scan image with root login.
Can anyone tell me how to make scanner work under normal user leve mode?

Any help will be appreciated.

You will need to set the right permissions.
Best thng to do would probably to make a 'scanner' group, assign ownership of ports and processes related to the scanner to that group and then make yourself (and any other uisers you want to be able to use the scanner) to this group.
Read up on groups and users for more specific info.
