Someone sent they thought it was a permissions problem and to run from root.
When you run XSane from root you get this message:
" You try to run XSane as root, that really is DANGEROUS!
Continue at your own risk
The next screen is:
no device available
I selected Help:
It lists 6 items.
Entry #4 is, I Think, where my problem lies.
4) The backend is not loaded by SANE (man sane-dll)
Doing " apropos sane" does not show a sane-dll.
I have no idea for fixing that.

I do not need the printer part at this time.
When I run sane-find-scanner I do get the vendor= 0x043d product=
0x07c @ libusb:001:006.

I have on my system VM box with windows XP installed.
Installing the Lexmark windows driver for the scanner I can scan items.
When running xsane from root or the graphic interface I get the same
