Thanks for your message, unfortunately, the log you sent me is the
actual scanned image, not the scan log. 

Maybe you omitted in the scanimage statement the 2 before the >
You must run scanimage, after the export statement, like this: 

scanimage 2> scanimage.log

scanimage.log should be a text file.

Could you try again to get it ?
