Hm, which version of sane are you using?
Are you sure, the magicolor backend is enabled in the sane configuration 
(ie. does /etc/sane.d/dll.conf contain a line "magicolor")?

I don't have enough time for IRC (not even enough time for doing any 
sane development atm). And I suppose I'm the only one who can really 
help you, as I'm the author of the magicolor backend.

Can you set some environment variables before calling scanimage, so you 
get (a lot of) useful debug output:


and then run scanimage -L (or xsane). You might first start with only 
the first variable (i.e. don't set the two *SANEI* variables). If that 
doesn't give you any output, then the magicolor backend isn't enabled at 
all. If you get some output, maybe we can track down the problem.
