I have them duplicated.
The files are both in /usr/lib/sane and in /usr/local/lib/sane
Is that bad?
In that case, How do I adjust the path? (sorry the noob question)

plustek.conf is duplicated too. I found the skipDarkStrip option in one 
of them and I changed it to 1, but now I'm not sure if I'm using the 
latest backends or the previous. How do I tell?
I tried to scan an image but It still shows stripes, so I think I'm 
still using the old backends.
It must be the wrong path, but I don't know how to adjust it.

Thanks for your patience :-)
