Let's summarize, you're using Linux Mint 13 and try to use an Epson
GT-1500. This scanner works fine with XSane. It does not work fine
with either gscan2pdf or scanimage.
That's weird. Can you provide debug logs obtained using scanimage?
$ SANE_DEBUG_EPKOWA=HEX scanimage --device=epkowa:interpreter:002:004 --help 2> gt-1500.log
# Hmm, I just now notice the mixed quotes in your command invocation.
# I'm assuming that your mail client "prettied" them up. They are not
# needed and as used should result in a error from your shell anyway.
Hope this helps,
