Which version of Mint?
There's a considerable difference between versions in this respect

This is one I have almost given up on
Impossible to find any Linux driver for Umax or Teco with USB
On the other hand it's reported that support is built in in SANE
In Daryna and earlier I had to add my scanner to a file, but this is no longer used in Elyssa and I don't know how it's done in Elyssa (this is for an unrecognized scanner)

I found the solution (I think) and adjusted this accordingly
