Ok I managed to fix it. All I did was uncomment the following lines in the avision.conf file located at

#option disable-gamma-table
#option disable-calibration
#option force-a4

Then I used xscanimage and it was able to scan, preview, and save my image with no problems. But when
using xscan, it freezes and takes a lot of time to load up the program--I mentioned that in my earlier
post. When it freezes, I kill the process then I try to use scanimage -L to detect my scanner, but it
fails to detect it thus causing me to disconnect and connect my scanner adapter then by using scanimage
-L it would detect the scanner.

When I do use xscanimage to scan my images, it succeeds and even if I kill the process, by using
scanimage -L it still detects my scanner no matter what. But when using xscan, it freezes, fails to
detect my device, and if I kill the process and check with scanimage -L, it fails to detect my scanner.
If you read my earlier post, I posted a small gdb error output regarding xscan in the first paragraph.
It's not much but that's all I can bring up.
