[opensuse] using scanner in KDE4

I can use Xsane and scan documents as root but as a normal user all scanning
programs report that there are no available devices. I assume that this is a
permission problem. Can anyone give me some advice as to how to correct this?

I am using opensuse 11.4 and kde 4.6; I have a PackardBell usb scanner and the
firmware is installed with permissions rw-r--r--.
