    I tried sane-find-scanner as user, not root, and it found nothing:

    :~> sane-find-scanner

    # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
    # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
    # scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

    # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

    # No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have setup
    # the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.
    # SANE has been built without libusb support. This may be a reason
    # for not detecting USB scanners. Read README for more details.

    # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

    # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
    # can't be detected by this program.

    # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
    # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
    # necessary.

    also:

    :~> sudo scanimage -L
    [sudo] password for root:
    device `v4l:/dev/video0' is a Noname Microsoft® LifeCam HD-3000 virtual device

    The more I read, the less I understand.

    For curiosity you tried through Yast> Hardware> Scanner to configure it?

    Yes, that was my first move. The LiDE 120 is found on re-scan but as sane doesn't know about it there is no option in the edit to select. This is in spite of sane's online documentation claiming that it is supported. The installed documentation does not mention it. Which is where we came in.

    I must get round to querying this with the sane-devel list, I've got as far as joining.

    On Mageia Xsane tries to use the LiDE 120 but it just makes a short grunt and stops. It does work with the MG2500, out of the box, I never got round to running the Canon installer for it. On openSUSE Xsane and Scanlite only find the MS webcam.

    I found this post in an Italian forum where with a command you force the recognition of the scanner, and then the author of the post says that it worked.

    This, with the aid of Google Translate, suggests firstly creating a /usr/lib/udev/rules.d file specifying the LiDE 120. This for me had no effect, and didn't work for the OP either. Secondly it suggests installing sane-backends from sane_backends_git, via a Fedora tool, dnf. That is the one that worked. This looks like the same thing that deano_ferrari suggested, but involves "allowerasing" and "downgrade" options. It didn't work for me. Should I perhaps have uninstalled the existing sane-backends first?

    I did not mean to let you install packages, that's a 2016 post.
    Only force scanner recognition.
    Sane-backends 1.0.27.git is also there https://software.opensuse.org/package/sane-backends

    I only tried the 'force scanner recognition', which didn't work, it didn't work for the Fedora OP either. As the sane-backends install looked to be the same as the one I had already tried, without success, I didn't attempt it. In any case it used a Fedora tool and presumably a Fedora source..

    As I can't tell if any of the packages in https://software.opensuse.org/package/sane-backends actually include the LiDE 120 I will hold off until I get a response from the list.

    Try the one from this Repo, its the last one from the sane.git:
    https://download.opensuse.org/reposi...USE_Leap_42.3/

    You can switch every Time back to the old one from the OSS Repo........
