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)?

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 :: Brother Inkjet Printer & Scanner Failed

Oct 12, 2010

I have a Brother MFC-240C inkjet printer & scanner. On installation of Maverick Meerkat v. 10.10, my scanner function failed. I added the same line into the file as for Lucid Lynx v. 10.04 and the scanner has scanned perfectly. The lines Brother gives are for the following file: Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04

1. Open "/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules" file.
2. Add the following two lines to the end of the device list. (Before the line "# The following rule will disable ..."):

# Brother scanners
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

above is found at: [URL]

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.

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 :: 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 :: 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.

Ubuntu :: Force Install Brother DCP7040 32-bit Driver On 10.10?

Feb 21, 2011

I just installed Maverick 64-bit on my new Satellite AMD 4-core laptop. I've run into an issue with the fact that Brother does not have a 64-bit driver for my Multi-Function Laser printer. They recommend force installing the 32-bit driver. I have made sure that all the 32-bit library and all the folders exist per Brothers instructions. However, I'm confused on what command I need to type in the terminal window to actually do the install. Can someone recommend the proper command to force install the 32-bit driver? Or should I download the source code and compile? I don't know the proper method for compiling a 64-bit driver either.

Hardware :: Ubuntu 9.04 64bit And Brother Dcp-7030 Cannot Install Driver?

Apr 13, 2010

Purchased a brother dcp-7030 laser printer after reading very positive web review/forum comments stating drivers were available from brother site. Unable to install cupswrapper driver successfully. Created /usr/share/cups/model directory as directed (and also a /usr/share/cups/dcp-7030 directory in case I hadn't quite understood the instructions) and then installed cupswrapper brother progs via synaptic. Cannot find a 7030 driver to install. Tried installing the driver from the brother site, but after downloading the .deb version and trying to install it, I get a wrong architecture msg. Checked and I have the 32 bit dependencies installed, which the brother site states are required.

OpenSUSE Multimedia :: Brother HL-2130 Printer Driver Not Found?

Jul 22, 2011

Friend got a Brother HL-2130 Printer and couldn't add printer using Yast as the drivers are not found by Yast.

I went to Brother Solutions Center : Brother Driver for Linux Distributions and downloaded the drivers provided by Brother.

rpm -ivh *.rpm

and everything works well.

How could we prompt the developers to update openSUSE so that these working drivers can be added into Yast to benefit future users.

The source code contain the following files:

-> ls -R
brcupsconfig Copying filter PPD

[Code] ....

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