Run the package manager, Adept or Synaptic, and see if the scanner driver named Sane is installed. If it is then check the system messages using the dmesg command. You may see information about the Sane driver or the scanner.

Couldnt this also be a kernel problem... well not problem as much as not configured with the scanner hardware option? Just a thought. You might want to check out: http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_ubuntu

Hope that helps,

On another note, I ran across this when doing some searching:

I thought it might be just what you were looking for.
