In principle: Create this file (or /dev/usbscanner0 or whatever you
want). But this isn't your problem.

This scanner is not supported. Is the scanner you use really a "Trust
Compact Scan USB 19200"? In this case Trust uses two completely
different scanners with the same name. The one that's supported is a
Mustek 1200UB in reality and was reported as a "Trust Compact Scan USB
19200" to me. Your scanner is probably a relabeled Mustek 1200UB Plus
which is not supported by the Mustek USB backend. At least the vendor
and device ids are the same.

Some details about the Mustek 1200 UB Plus are on my website:
