When I start xsane, It exits with the message no decvice accessible.

But I would like to use it just as OCR tool.

How can I suppress the device search?

You could use tesseract-ocr or cuneiform directly (command line) or with another frontend, try gscan2pdf, it can use a scanner, but you can load an image file, too.
