As starting point to get your scanner working under Linux go to SANE: Supported Devices

Get the AGFA Scanwise driver package, which contains the necessary firmware "Snape50.bin" and save that somewhere.
Then modify /etc/sane.d/snapscan.conf:
firmware /path/to/ScanWise/Drivers/Snape50.bin
That's it.
