    The package appears to be "buildable". You can download the source
  from www.twain.org and compile it (it's not very easy: you need to change
  directory to twaidsm-1.2.1/src, type cmake ., then make). If you have the
  i386.deb, you can look at the contents with dpkg-deb -c twaindsm.deb
  and install the files in the correct directories.

     Sorry if I'm not very precise...

       Hope this helps anyway,
