Not quite sure what this is about. But I will guess it is a scanner problem.
This shouldn't have anything to do with the 'group' a user is in, but more 
likely is a driver/.firmware problem. For example, my canoscan works without 
any user tweaks after plugging it in, while my old mustek needs a firmware file, 
but otherwise  works the same.

What scanner brand and model?
