That scanner is listed as "untested" so I don't know if it works.

In this case you probably haven't installed libusb or /proc/bus/usb is
not set up correctly. See the man page sane-usb for details.

Since version 1.0.12 the avision backend makes use of libusb to access
USB scanners. Before that version, a kernel module "hpusbscsi" was
necessary. For details have a look at the archive of the sane-devel
mailing list. There was a discussion about this topic during the lat
one or two weeks.
