No worries, libsane contains the backends. You might need adjust the
installation paths. Check where i.e. libsane-plustek* is installed.

When you use the latest backends, please check for the option 
"skipDarkStrip" in the plustek.conf file and set it to 1, then 
recalibrate the scanner again. This should help.
