you need the firmware file for your scanner ("Snapscan 1212U_2.bin"  
from your scanner driver CD). Save it under a name without spaces and  
specify the filename (with full path) in the file /usr/local/etc/ 

After that, check if "scanimage -L" on the command line finds the  

If the scanner still isn't found, run

SANE_DEBUG_SNAPSCAN=255 scanimage -L > debug.log

and send me the resulting debug.log file.
