/etc/udev/rules.d/10-usbprinter.rules
ATTR{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTR{idProduct}=="01ea", MODE:="0664", GROUP:="lp", ENV{libsane_matched}:="yes"

Troubleshooting

Software cannot use the scanner

The unit will print but not scan when plugged into some USB 3.0 ports. Use a USB 2.0 port for the printer or disable USB 3.0 by blacklisting the xhci_hcd module if necessary.

I cannot print anything from LibreOffice

If you can print a test page from http://localhost:631, but can't print anything from LibreOffice, try to install a2ps.
