Are you sure that the group change (ie. adding yourself to 'scanner') has

You may have to log out of your Xsession and log in again to get shells
spawned using the new/updated group assignments. (Is there a more efficient
way to do this? This seems really inelegant.)
A quick workaround to initialize an up-to-date login environment is to
'ssh -X localhost' from within a local shell...
Use 'newgrp <groupname>'. That essentially puts you in a new shell with
all the environment carried forward but recognizes the specified group
and also makes it the primary group for that shell.
