I also have a problem installing Panasonic KX-MB1500 on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. Drivers taken from As a printer and a copy device it works. Installation itself seemed unproblematic. In the past, version 14., it has worked, it failed in 16 but I have not tried hard.

lsusb gives:

Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04da:0f0b Panasonic (Matsushita)
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:8179 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL8188EUS 802.11n Wireless Network Adapter

sudo sane-find-scanner gives:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x0bda [Realtek], product=0x8179 [802.11n NIC]) at libusb:001:002
could not fetch string descriptor: Pipe error

sudo scanimage -L gives nothing.
