Angry Canon LIDE30 only recognised in root

Running SUSE 9.1

I have installed a Canon LIDE30 scanner. It tests all right in YAST, it is
correctly reported by device manager, but neither XSANE or Kooka can see it
when logged on as a user. _XSANE and Kooka recognise the scanner in root but I know this is a dangerous activity.

Currently I am having to boot to Windows to scan.

Any ideas?
