Unsupported image scanner ...

I have got an unsupported USB image scanner (EPSON PERFECTION V300
PHOTO) attached to my FreeBSD 10.0-STABLE amd64 .
Though I would like to have some fun with it ... This is how far I got:

# dmesg
ugen5.2: <EPSON> at usbus5

# usbconfig list
ugen5.2: <EPSON Scanner EPSON> at usbus5, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH
(480Mbps) pwr=ON (2mA)

# sane-find-scanner -q
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04b8 [EPSON], product=0x0131 [EPSON
Scanner]) at libusb:/dev/usb:/dev/ugen5.2


# scanimage -L

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).

So I typed a line into /usr/local/etc/sane.d/epson2.conf :
	usb 0x04b8 0x0131

The result for scanimage -L remains the same as above. I wouldn't
exactly expect my scanner to work, but at least it could identify
itself. Perhaps there is a problem with file and device permissions?

Thanks for your ideas/help!
