Dear allan, thanks for the quick reply

following your advice, I've installed 1.0.24 (after installing libusb-dev
package, I've followed standard procedure: ./configure, make and sudo make
install, now executables are under /usr/local/bin )

now sane-find-scanner works

> /usr/local/bin/sane-find-scanner

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04c5, product=0x132b) at libusb:002:007


and with sudo it works even better:

> sudo /usr/local/bin/sane-find-scanner

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04c5 [Fujitsu], product=0x132b [ScanSnap iX500])
at libusb:002:007

however sadly

> sudo /usr/local/bin/scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you .... (etc. etc.)

again the scanner remains stuck with a yellow flashing "half-light"

any suggestion? I am concerned about the message received when the scanner
is powered on (from dmesg):

usb 2-6: new high-speed USB device number 7 using ehci-pci

is it normal "ehci-pci"?? 

any help is really welcome
