Did you looked at the tools/hotplug/README? For me with kernel 2.6.11
there's config at /etc/hotplug/usb/libsane.usermap as below:

grep -i LIDE /etc/hotplug/usb/libsane.usermap
# Canon Inc.|CanoScan N670U/N676U/LIDE 20
# Canon Inc.|CanoScan N1240U/LIDE 30
# Canon Inc.|LIDE 50
# Genesys Logic, Inc.|Pacific Image Electronics PrimeFilm 1800u slide/negative scanner

so that sane-find-scanner gave me:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x2213 [CanoScan], chip=GL841) at libusb:001:002

enjoy it ;-)
