The L210, NX210, SX210 and TX210 series are supported, yes.

Hmm, the epkowa backend is an external SANE backend. It is *not* part
of the libsane package you installed. I assume you installed the iscan
bundle available from:

OK, so you've got an L210 Series device.

OK, so you've got iscan installed ;-)
Looks like you have a permissions problem. Your user needs to be part
of the scanner group. Is it? You can check with
$ groups | grep scanner
If this produced no output, you can fix that with
$ sudo adduser swami scanner
Then log out of you desktop session and back in again. If it was indeed
a permissions problem, you should now be able to use your scanner.
Hope this helps,
