Hi, Sorry if I am not very knowledgeable;
I installed scanimage and sane on a Mac running 10.6 and it works from command line. (http://www.ellert.se/twain-sane/)
But xsane, which I installed from MacPorts, which took many hours of compiling things, does not find any devices, even though I can scan and view images using the command line. ImageCapture on the mac works as well (ie it finds the scanner). So I am pretty sure the problem must be with xsane.
Here is some output
edr:~ goossens$ sane-find-scanner
# sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.
# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.
