I then changed its ownership

permissions that I want directly from mknod? Is there a better way to
get this working properly?

You need something like this in /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_libsane.rules

# Epson DX-7400 | Epson DX-7400
SYSFS{idVendor}=="04b8", SYSFS{idProduct}=="0838", MODE="0664", GROUP="scanner", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

and make sure you are in the 'scanner' group. (I copied that line from
my sid machine).

I have added the line to /etc/udev/rules.d/z60_libsane.rules. Do I need
to reboot the system to get it recognized, or is there another way?
Like restarting a daemon, or something of that sort?
