    Simple Scan, XSane, Brother MFC-240c all-in-one

    I have a Brother MFC-240C inkjet printer & scanner. On installation of Natty Narwahl v. 11.04, my scanner function failed.

    I added the same line into the file as for Lucid Lynx v. 10.04 and the scanner has now scanned perfectly in both Simple Scan and XSane.

    The lines Brother gives are for the following file in:

    Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04, 10.10, 11.04

    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 ..."):


    The lines to be added---------------------------

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

    Hello, I've had a similar problem. I have a Brother DCP-195C and am running Ubuntu 10.10. I've followed Brother's instructions and installed the drivers from the .deb files. I have also added the libsane rule. The scan programs simplescan and xsane recognise that the scanner is there but won't connect to it. Xsane gives an 'invalid argument' error message.

    No, it's fine. Worked on restart. Finally!

    From a terminal
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules
    should do the necessary.

    Good Luck
