To get sane-utils installed, did you uncomment the universe source in
sources.list (the second group)? I did install sane-find-scanner OK,
but that didn't get me very far.

 Following advice on this list, I opened a bug report on this issue.
It is number 1485. I will post back when we find a resolution. Looks
like sane-find-scanner is not finding my scanner even after I get it
