[sane-devel] Scanner stopped working

I have a Umax Astra 1200S scanner that has been working perfectly with 
Xsane and Gimp for quite some time. The other day I configured USB 
support on my system and now the scanner won't work. I've tried Xsane, 
xscanimage and scanimage and each time the program just hangs. No error 
messages, nothing. When I run sane-find-scanner I get the following 
error message...

sane-find-scanner: error while loading shared libraries: 
libusb-0.1.so.4: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

My scanner is SCSI, not USB. I have a USB digital camera that works just 
fine and the file mentioned above does exist and is in the right place 
as far as I can tell.

I have a dual boot system and the scanner does work under Win98

Can anyone help me get this scanner working again?
