I seem to be missing the mustek_usb2.conf file.   Downloaded 
sane-backend-1.0.18 and installed.  No mustek_usb2.conf, downloaded the 
latest mustek_usb2 file from the web site below and installed.  No 
mustek_usb2.conf file.     If I understand correctly from sane-usb(5) man 
page, I might be able to add "usb 0x0a53 0x5001" in the .conf file and the 
backend might work?
