I think I'm looking at the support section for that hardware(?): ==> http://support.rolanddga.com/_layouts/r ... SV-8/12/15
I see documentation, software, drivers for Windows and a little for Mac. Nothing for Linux.
There's a lot of very proprietary hardware out there, multi-function printers, scanners, etc. which are NOT fully functional or functional at all in Linux. I'm afraid your 'Roland ...' may fit into that second category?

FWIW, I've been trying to do the same thing for years now and have been successful for the most part. Unfortunately I too own a proprietary piece of scanner hardware that still makes having a seldom used Windows machine on the premisses necessary.
