[arch-general] Scanner only works as root

I have an HP Photosmart C3180 all-in-one (printer/scanner/copier).
Installed cups, hplip, sane.
Printing works. Scanning, however, only works as root, otherwise xsane
says that there are no devices.
But if I chmod 777 -R /dev/bus/usb/* it works for my current user;
therefore I deduce it is a permission problem. This looks like an udev
problem, however my udev knowledge is next to null.
What steps could I take to solve this problem? I would like to get rid
of this ugly hack.
