I've already answered privately but I'll make some general comments
that may help people in the same situation.

It is not enough to add the scanner to gt68xx.conf, it must be also
added to the source code. The reason for that is that there are so
many settings that vary from one scanner to another.

That's explained here:

There is really no way to do that remotely. YOu must have that scanner
and play with the source code until scanning works and works well.

That just means it's not in the source code.
