The Lide 30 is supported by the plustek backend.

Try "SANE_DEBUG_PLUSTEK=255 scanimage -L" to find out what's wrong.

The plustek backend is the right one. You can find out about which
scanner is supported by which backend by using the scanner search
engine: http://sane.informatik.uni-freiburg.de/cgi-bin/driver.pl

The setup of the config file is explained in man sane-plustek. But
ususally this should work without manual intervention. Also check that
"plustek" is in dll.conf.
