I found your message in my spam folder, not sure if it was because of
formatting (HTML?) or because of non-English words somewhere, but probably
this happens a lot, please be patient....

Unfortunately, I am not familiar with the installation on MacOSX using the
packages (although I know of the packages).

The "driver" is the avision backend, and that supports the scanjet 5300C.
You won't find a driver called "ScanJet 5300C". The avision backend, if
compiled, will be used by SANE at startup to search for attached devices
matching the supported USB IDs registered (programmed into) that backend.
So if the avision backend is in the 1.0.24 SANE package, and this avision
backend supports the ScanJet 5300C, then running the frontend (whatever
application you use that uses SANE to do the scanning) should result in
your scanner being detected.
If not, then conceivably either the frontend is not using the installed
SANE yet, or the avision backend included does not support the ScanJet
5300C, or there is a permission problem somewhere that prevents the scanner
from being used.
