xsane and simple-scan only working as root

I can't figure out why xsane and simple-scan only work as root, on Ubuntu
13.10. The programs report that they don't find a scanner if run as normal
user. I've tried 'adduser normaluser scanner' as well as 'adduser
normaluser saned' and 'adduser saned scanner', then 'sux - normaluser' to
get the new group ids before starting xsane / simple-scan, to no avail.

Anyone knows the solution?
