No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

I do have a device defined in /etc/sane.d/plustek.conf file. Still won't
work, though. Only sane-find-scanner seems to be able to see the scanner.
Thanks for the suggestions.
