---------------------------------------------------------+------------------
 In PC-BSD 7.01 my USB scanner (Canon LiDE 25) is properly recognized as
 uscanner0, but the device permissions are not right.
 While I can use the scanner by starting skanlite as root, when I start
 skanlite as a normal user, I get an error message that no scanners were
 found.
 That's because the user doesn't have read/write permissions to
 /dev/uscanner0.

 Adding
 {{{
 add path uscanner[0-9]* mode 0660 group operator
 }}}

 to /etc/devfs.conf
 should fix that.
