    Hiya all
    Just installed my Brother MFC640CW using the MFC210 deb files. Printer is working fine but my scanner comes up with "failed to open device:Brother2,bus1,dev1: invalid argument when starting Xsane. Its a local printer on usb.. Any help would be great thanks . sane seems to find 2 scanners ...
    # 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.

    # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
    # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

    found USB scanner (vendor=0x04f9, product=0x0197) at libusb:005:003
    found USB scanner (vendor=0x0ac8, product=0x305b) at libusb:004:002
    # Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
    # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

    # Not checking for parallel port scanners.

    # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
    # can't be detected by this program.

    # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
    # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
    # necessary.
