Hardware :: Using Brother Scanner (MF) Under Non-root In Debian?

Mar 12, 2010

There is a problem with scanning on Brother multifunctional under Debian Squeeze/Sid. I get things smooth and good under root (both scanimage and xsane), but under user it gives


scanimage: open of device brother3:bus6;dev1 failed: Invalid argument Obviously as under root works fine, lsusb has no problems with detection.


Bus 005 Device 010: ID 04f9:01ea Brother Industries, Ltd

Already fixed /etc/fstab:


none /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto,devmode=0666 0 0

but it is useless anyway. I had already used the scanner under simple user in ubuntu and it all worked.

Ubuntu :: Can't Use Scanner On Brother DCP 7020

Mar 7, 2010

I'm using 9.10 on x86 architecture. I've searched the forums and anything related to scanning talks about editing /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules which doesn't seem to exist on my system. Judging from the dates most of these posts probably relate to intrepid or jaunty. XSane just says 'no devices available'. Printing works fine.

Ubuntu :: Scanner Driver For Brother MFC-665CW?

May 18, 2010

During installation of Ubuntu 10.04, there was no driver found for my Brother MFC-665CW printer/scanner. However, I recently learned on the Forum that there is a printer driver available for the MFC-665CW through Synaptic that can be accessed by searching on printer name. I got it, and it works great. I've not been successful in locating a driver for the scanner part of the MFC-665CW. Does anyone know if there is a driver available on Synaptic that will work for the scanner on a MFC-665CW, and if so how to get to it (i.e., what to search on to locate it)?

Hardware :: Brother Scanner Not Being Recognized In Fedora 11?

Oct 15, 2009

I have a Brother MFC-7345 Printer/Scanner and I got the printer working but the scanner won't work. I've installed all the drivers from Brother and followed all their instructions but still nothing. sane-find-scanner gives me

# 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.


and scanimage -L gives me No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

Hardware :: Brother MFC-8670DN -- Scanner Not Working In Ubuntu 9.04?

May 11, 2009

I just installed an all-in-one Brother MFC-8670DN in Ubuntu 9.04. The printing works great but I cannot get the scanner recognized. I tried brscan, brscan2 and brscan3 from the Linux section of the Brother website to no avail. Previously had a lower model Brother MFC working fine. I called Brother and they said that "I need to call Linux for help with the scanner." Anyone who can help with the Brother MFC-8670DN? It would be very much appreciated. This printer may go back to the store if I cannot get the scanner working in Ubuntu 9.04.

Debian Configuration :: Only Root Can See Scanner?

Aug 20, 2010

Having successfully installed SANE and gotten a scan from my ancient Mustek scanner, I thought I had it setup. But that was running in the root terminal window. When I try to run xscanimage from GIMP in my normal user account it doesn't start up. Running xscanimage in a normal terminal it says it can't see any scanners. Yes, I added my user account to the scanner group. What else needs to be done to let a normal non-root user access the scanner?

Debian Hardware :: Sane Scanner Only Detected By Root

I added myself to the scanner and saned groups, however scanimage -L only detects the device when run as superuser. I think this may be related to [URL].

device 'epson2:/dev/sg0' is a Epson GT-9800 flatbed scanner

Ubuntu :: Canon MX320 Scanner Not Able To Get The XSane Image Scanner To Recognize Scanner?

Jul 11, 2010

I just received a Canon Pixma MX320 as a gift.

I am currently running the Ubuntu 10.04 OS

I was able to get the printer up and running by downloading the printer driver for debian linux (3.1) from the Canon site without any problems.

Unfortunately I am not having the same luck with the scanner.

I tried downloading ScanGear MP for Linux (deb) (1.3) from the same Canon site but have not yet been able to get the XSane Image Scanner to recognize this scanner driver for my Canon.

Debian :: Brother MFC665CW - Cannot Print PDF File

Jul 9, 2010

I am using debian Lenny and a Brother MFC-665CW printer. I am trying to print a PDF, but nothing happens. I'm not sure if I've ever printed in Lenny (recently upgraded from Etch). It worked fine in Etch. I "added" the printer again in KDE Print and it spat out a test page, but it does absolutely nothing if I send the document to print.

Debian Hardware :: Brother HL-1030 Installation On Lenny?

Mar 24, 2011

I've installed drivers for Brother HL-1030 printer (LPT port), according to instructions provided in this site,...


Although the printer is ok (because it works in other OS like windows) when i try to print a document, the printer gets alive, shows that is receiving data with "data" led and i even see a progress bar showing how the data is being sent but, in the end, data led turns off and the printer does not even load the paper. This are the commands i've used for installing the driver:

ln -s /etc/init.d/cups /etc/init.d/lpd
mkdir /var/spool/lpd
mkdir /var/spool/lpd/HL1030
dpkg -i --force-all hl1030lpr-1.1.2-1.i386.deb

Hardware :: Getting Canon 8800F Scanner Working / No Other Scanner Found?

Sep 23, 2010

Recently got a Canon Canoscan 8800F after looking it up on the SANE site and said it was completely supported for Linux.

I have downloaded the pixma drivers and have compiled the command line program, but it can't find the scanner.

lsusb returns a Canon scanner Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04a9:1901 Canon, Inc.

and sane-find-scanner returns:found USB scanner (vendor=0x04a9 [Canon], product=0x1901 [CanoScan]) at libusb:001:005

but scanimage -L (under my user login or sudo) returns only the webcam. No other scanner found.

My system is running Linux Mint 7, ia64 kernel 2.6.28-11-generic

I've installed XSane Image Scanner. When I first opened it, it searched for my scanner and didn't give any error messages, and it had my scanner model in the heading of the scan window. But when I hit the scan button, it gave me saying, "Failed to start scanner: error during device I/O.I closed everything, and opened XSane again. This time it said there was no scanner available. The scanner is plugged into the USB port and uses that for both power and data. It's a Canoscan Model N650U.

Debian Hardware :: Brother Mfc-440cn Doesn't Respect Gray Printing Just Color

I have a mfc-440cn installed and working in Debian wheezy 7.4 (the last one) but I cant fix to it for printing in grey, I was using the pdf default reader and send some pages to printing indicating not to print them in color just greys colors but doesn't respect that order, it prints full color. When I see the conf page for the printer it stills have the configuration I did indicating to print grey but it ignores it and print as it wants (full color).

Debian Hardware :: Compile Driver For Laser Printer Brother HL1110 For AMD64

Mar 31, 2015

I have bought a BrotherHL-1110 laser printer. But there is no driver on my system. I have downloaded source code but don't understand how to compile it. (

It does only exist driver-packages for 32 bits: hl1110cupswrapper-3.0.1-1.i386.deb and hl1110lpr-3.0.1-1.i386.deb)

My system is:
Release 7.8 (wheezy) 64-bit
Kernel Linux 3.2.0-4-amd64
GNOME 3.4.2
AMD Athlon(tm) II X2 245 Processor × 2

The source code contain the following files:
-> pwd

-> ls -R
brcupsconfig Copying filter PPD

[Code] ....

How do I compile and install it on my computer ? ( Or get the printer working ? )
