...did you also "activate" (uncomment) the genesys "module" in
/etc/sane.d/dll.conf? That's sort of the master configuration file,
determining which "modules" sane actually uses to search for a scanner.

If scanimage -L works as root but not as user, check if you are in the
plugdev and the scanner group (I think that's the two that are relevant).

Best of luck,

P.S: Just wondering: Is this actually on-topic here?
