That's ok because you should use a SANE device name, not a device
file. E.g. something like "xscanimage umax:/dev/ss0". Yes, that's
mention in man xscanimage but I also had to look closely to find it :-)

Does it still not work after adding the symlink /dev/scanner?
xscanimage and scanimage should begave the same.

I never used pint but you should be able to do without it by just
using the umax backend. Instead of the /dev/scanner symlink you could
have added /dev/ss0 to umax.conf.

Thanks for your report!
