What version of LibO are you using, what scanner and what scanner software? LibO should link to the scanner using the installed scanner software. Perhaps there is a problem with your particular combination and more detail would help find a solution.

For example, I am using an Epson V700 with XSANE image software running under Ubuntu 12.04. Both LibO and 4.0.1 work fine importing images into Writer.

I personally prefer to import images directly into my image library and then link to them from LibO. Perhaps this might help in your particular case.
