Generally, to find out if a scanner is supported by SANE, enter it
into the scanner search engine:

It says that that scanner is supported with support level "basic" by
the snapscan backend.

Maybe your sane-backends package is just too old? As far as I know,
you need version 1.0.16 for that scanner.

That scanner isn't even in our list. Can anyone provide more details
(vendor/product ids, chipset)? Support is planned for the epkowa
backend, see the list archive of this list for details.
