thanks for helping me.

I have installed SANE in my config.scm

 (modify-services %desktop-services
               config => (guix-configuration
                 (inherit config)
                 (extra-options (list "--gc-keep-derivations=yes" 
        (sane-service-type _ => sane-backends))))

and also I installed some packages like
xsane, sane-backends, sane-airscan, scanbd

I checked the SANE database and it seems that my printer is not supported, because of the older version of SANE in Guix.

May be this is the problem.

How would be the command to use libsane directly in the terminal?

Kind regards

I recommend against using hplip, if that's where that's from. I would
instead search the SANE database [1] for your device and use libsane

Kind regards
