Sane acknowledged perfectly my scanner Epson GT 7000 and it up to 
the version 9.10 of Ubuntu.
With the version 10.04 of Ubuntu the scanner is acknowledged as a 
generic scanner. 
Here is the answer of scanimage: 

joel at Fixe:~$ scanimage -L
device `epson2:/dev/sg2' is a Epson generic flatbed scanner
joel at Fixe:~$ scanimage --version
scanimage (sane-backends) 1.0.20; backend version 1.0.20


joel at Fixe:~$ 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.

found SCSI processor "EPSON SCANNER GT-7000 1.14" at /dev/sg2
  # Your SCSI scanner was detected. It may or may not be supported 
by SANE. Try
  # scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage......

Consequence is that I can use the scanner only in it's basic 
functions. Particularly I cannot use the adapter any more for negative 
and slides because alone the flatbed source is offered.

Thank you for your help
