So far, so good. You should have the required DFSG non-free interpreter
module that is needed for this scanner installed.

You need the epkowa backend uncommented. If I remember correctly,
that bundle adds /etc/sane.d/dll.d/epkowa.conf that should take
care of this.
Have you tried as root? Can you provide the log file produced by
sudo SANE_DEBUG_DLL=1 SANE_DEBUG_EPKOWA=hex scanimage -L 2>&1 | tee log
If it lists the scanner and mentions the epkowa backend, it's a
permission problem or an issue with the backend not being able to load
the interpreter. If not, it may be an issue with the bundle's udev
