I went there and it said:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:sane-project/sane-release
sudo apt-get update

What it Didn't say (and it took me several hours to find out) is that you then 
have to say

sudo apt-get install libsane=1.0.31

after which it seems to have worked (well, I have scanned the same document 6 
times without problem). Now to get the gamma correction sorted out - but that 
can wait till tomorrow.

So thanks for all your help.
