Thanks for your reply.

With sane1.0.5 scanimage works,
but xscanimage and xsane (0.79) still reports no scanner found. I have'nt done anything else than compiling and installing xsane or xscanimage (should I ?) I have tried without being root too as xsane wanted.

console output from xscanimage and scanimage below:

[root@localhost /root]# /usr/local/bin/xscanimage
[xscanimage] No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something
          different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and
          detected by the find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read
          the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ,
