Fix udev permissions

Create a Udev rule for the use of USB scanners (hidraw*)

$ sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/99-hidraw-permissions.rules

and add the following lines

SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="05e0", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1200", MODE="666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="080c", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0300", MODE="666"
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ATTRS{idVendor}=="0c2e", ATTRS{idProduct}=="1001", MODE="666"

Finally reload the udev rules with the following command

$ sudo udevadm control --reload-rules && sudo udevadm trigger
