The niash backend is not officially part of sane yet.
(Getting it ready for inclusion is on my list of urgent things to do
with it)

I don't know why it says you didn't provide sane installation, but I
know that there are some bugs in Kooka that may prevent it from working.
It could be that xsane and xscanimage complain because of permission
problems to the libusb files. Try it as root and see if it works.
Also make sure that you have the usbdevfs mounted on /proc/bus/usb.

You can also try to load the scanner kernel module (modprobe scanner
(as root)) and see if it works with the scanner kernel module loaded.

Kind regards,
