Default uscanner0 permissions

I have been very happy with a recently installed am64 current desktop but am hav
ing difficulties scanner as a user. I have xsane installed and see my HP 5200C
scanner attach to uscanner0 in the dmesg. I am a member of the wheel group.

When I start xsane it says no scanner found
What I think is the pertinent part of my dmesg

The OpenBSD.README for sane says I just need rw permissions.
I am going to try adding myself to the saned group which I just found but say nothing that this is needed for user access.

Output of sane-find-scanner
$ sane-find-scanner

# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

found USB scanner (UNKNOWN vendor and product) at device /dev/uscanner0
# Your USB scanner was detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.
# `UNKNOWN vendor and product' means that there seems to be a scanner at this
# device file but the vendor and product ids couldn't be identified.
# Currently identification only works with Linux versions >= 2.4.8. You may
# need to configure your backend manually, see the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
# necessary.
Any suggestions appreciated
