Ok, all sorted.
Thanks to the help of Rolf and Gernot.
The problem was laying in many different attempts to install
sane-backends, some wrong linking, and after a total clean-up of all the
installations, we noticed that the libsane.la was located in the folder
So creating symbolic links to that file
$ cd /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu
$ sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib/libsane.so.1.0.24 libsane.so.1
$ sudo ln -sf /usr/local/lib/sane/libsane.la libsane.la
$ cd -
solved the problem.
Everything running smoothly now.
Please note that if xsane has problems in shutting down after using sudo
xsane, remove the '~/.sane/' folder. And that little problem solved aswell.
