Using usb scanner DSmobile 620

I would like to utilize a Brother DSmobile 620 document scanner in Xfce 4.10. To that end, I downloaded the manufacturer's drivers as rpm, extracted via rpmextract.sh and copied the driver files to the respective root directories (etc, lib, usr). Thereafter, I installed sane 1.0.24. Upon plugging in the scanner, it is not recognized by sane.

lsusb | grep Brother
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04f9:60e0 Brother Industries, Ltd
sudo sane-find-scanner\
  # ...
  # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have setup
  # the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.
  # ...
scanimage -L
  # Only the webcam is identified

Any suggestions on getting this usb scanner to work?

Re: Using usb scanner DSmobile 620

After almost one year, I found a solution. (Notice the "a solution", as it merely defers the issue.)

Download the Debian package from the manufacturer's website and install it via

sudo dpkg --force-depends -i libsane-dsseries_1.0.5-1_yourArchitecture.deb

Prior to using a sane frontend, load module sg.

sudo modprobe sg
