It is possible to run the official VueScan on Ubuntu with the following steps.

My system is (at time of writing) Ubuntu 18.04 LTS x64 Beta.

VueScan

Download VueScan from here, naturally selecting the latest Linux option.

In a terminal session 'cd' to the location of the download, most likely '~/Downloads':

tar zxvf downloadname.tgz

When I did this it created a subdirectory called 'VueScan'. Do a 'cd' to enter that location and type:

./vuescan

If it complains about missing libraries, move to the next section.

Libraries and Dependencies

The VueScan application may require some libraries in order to run. The Minolta site references Ubuntu 10.10, despite the latest release at time of writing being January 2018. The following will install the required libraries of x64 versions of Ubuntu:

sudo apt install libusb-0.1-4:i386
sudo apt install libgtk2.0-0:i386
sudo apt install libsm6:i386

The above could be run as one command line by concatenating the libraries, however, each gives you a better idea of the additional dependencies being installed alongside them.

Notes

The software is free-with-caveats; it superimposes many "Buy VueScan now!" across your scanned images.
