If your scanner is connected via USB, then you have to run "lsusb". This lists all your USB devices. Search for an entry which looks like your scanner. This, for example, is my scanner:

Bus 005 Device 005: ID 04f9:0184 Brother Industries, Ltd DCP-7025 Printer

The 4-digit numbers after "ID" are the ones you have to use in your udev rules. In this case:

SYSFS{idVendor}=="04f9", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0184", MODE="664", GROUP="scanner"

This instruction is quite similar to those from Brother:
There you also get the driver packages.
