I have done a bit more research and located a ppa to update sane:
I added this to my repository list and updated. I now see:

So scanimage 1.0.23 now sees the scanner. I was also able to use
simple-scan 126.96.36.199 to scan a document, confirming basic function of
As this scanner is noted as "testers needed", is there anything I can
provide you at this point with the 1.0.23 release? If I need to install
1.0.24 from git to be of real assistance I will do so, but I will need
someone to outline all the steps to get this working properly on my
system. I am running linux mint 11 Katya x64 on the system I am
currently using to test this, which is based on ubuntu 11.04 natty. I
have another system running linux mint 13 Maya x64 which is based on
ubuntu 12.04 precise which I could also use and might do so in the
future after further testing.
