I'm on Ubuntu+Guix, using simple-scan from the Guix package. When I run
it from within i3, I see only one scanner I once used at a friend, I
don't see my home-scanner. Only when I use XFCE, I see my scanner.
Haven't figured out who's fault it is.

sane-find-scanners doesn't find the scanner, but when I read the man
page of it, no wonders: The scanner is network-connected and the manual
says it will scan for USB and SCSI scanners.

I'm excited to read the follow-ups :-)
