    So it's at least detected by the kernel driver.

    As there is no backend called "mustek_usb" this won't have any effect.
    There is no support for any Mustek USB scanner in SANE currently.
    Where did you get these options?

    Don't do that. This will result in the SCSI scanner backends trying to
    connect to a USB scanner ...

    That's probably the result of the above link.

    Thanks for this data. I will add this scanner to

    You can try the driver from Mustek (see the above web page for a link)
    which was written for the Mustek 1200 UB. But I don't think it will
    work for your scanner. I will look at this driver in the next weeks
    but I can't promise anything.
