[sane-devel] missing PFU alias QUATO

Can one help me to type the terminal question right?

What is the complete syntax to look for SANE in OSX?
I tried with


in front of

sane-find-scanner -v -v

(with and w/o sudo)
The FAQ also says

sudo emacs /usr/local/etc/sane.d/?name of your backend?.conf

My HD is named "X", the computers name is "G3". What is the name of my 
backend? Is it the Model name shown by Apple Profiler? Would be PS4800 
in my case. Here are the terminal results:

thanks for any help,
