I also use GNOME, so this might be irrelevant or not helpful, but this
is one of the reasons I switched from CentOS to Ubuntu - Maverick
recognizes and handles both my scanners perfectly, with the simple
scan that comes with the install and with xsane, of which I have grown
rather fond.

I highly recommend xsane.  Synaptic and the Software Center should both have it.
