I don't have a Suse installed here so I can not check myself, but
libjpeg8  is the old libjpeg8 if I understand it correctly, while
libjpeg is the new jpeg-turbo implementation. Wilhelm tested this and
libjpeg8 worked. I assume that is does not matter much, but using
libjpeg seems safer than libjpeg8 (the old one), depending on what
libsane is linked to (what does ldd /usr/lib/libsane.so | grep jpeg
