No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

# 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 scanner "CANON IX-12015E 1.07" at /dev/sg0
# Your SCSI scanner was detected. It may or may not be supported by 
# scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have 
# the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
# necessary.
