At the time of writing this, these 3 packages need to be downloaded and


The first two packages can be found in the Debian experimental libs at
this link

The last package I found in this link

In some cases you may need to navigate to an ftp mirror site to actually
download. Once downloaded, simply install each package as root i.e sudo
dpkg -i package

I have tested with simple-scan, xsane, and scangearmp and all works

  Simple Scan and Sane hang greyed out

Status in simple-scan package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Sane has not been working at all.
   Simple Scan, XSane, and other associated programs detect and offer installed 
scanners, choose one then screen greys out after a long wait.
  Using Ubuntu 15.04
   check and update every day
  This scanner has been functioning commanded by PC and by scanner panel 
buttons for many months but now hangs with a grey screen and red note "failed 
to scan Unable to connect to scanner"
   I have tried al sorts but mostly up against a brick wall for the last few 
  Printer operates properly.

  This might help
