Ah yes. The other option would be:
sudo apt-get upgrade
...if you already had SANE installed, which should automatically pick up
the more up-to-date version.
Usually on here, we would add that little gem if we were giving
instructions to someone.
The PPA site text is canned wording from launchpad and I guess that they
assume that users would know what to do next.
Glad to hear that you now have success! Good luck!
