    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    hi all ubuntu it's great!!!!
    sorry but i've a problem with this tutorial and my Brother DCP-115 and 'im on a amd64 bit
    when i get this command
    Code:
    sudo dpkg -i --force-all mfc210clpr-1.0.2-1.i386.deb
    Code:
    jack@Panzer-Faust:~$ cd Scrivania
    jack@Panzer-Faust:~/Scrivania$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all mfc210clpr-1.0.2-1.i386.deb
    dpkg - attenzione, ignoro il seguente problema perché si è usata --force:
     il pacchetto è per una architettura (i386) diversa da quella del sistema (amd64)
    (Lettura del database ... 119404 file e directory attualmente installati.)
    Mi preparo a sostituire mfc210clpr 1.0.2-1 (con mfc210clpr-1.0.2-1.i386.deb) ...
    Spacchetto il sostituto di mfc210clpr ...

    G'Day All,
    In my post #126 Quote: "The only problem I have is if I press the Scan button and try to scan to a file option, the Brother's Control Panel displays a message "Connecting to PC" but nothing happens, it appears to clear the message after a few minutes." With the help from Brother Solutions Center Japan I can now scan any document using the Scan Button or Xzane.
    I had to send Brother Solutions Cente the "brscan-skey --diagnosis" from this they told me that "Scanimage is not installed. Since Scanimage is contained in sane-utils in Ubuntu, please install it." (the Japanese are so polite).
    Also there are new drivers for a lot of their newer DCP printer/scanners, installing the new version may help those that are having minor problems with their printer/scanner functions. Old Kevin
    .

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    probem with scan /xsane
    followed brothers site
    Code:
    Devices on network
      0 SCANNER1            "MFC-5440CN"        N:BRN_ABA9E7
    using the node name because my printer is networked
    when I open xsane is scans for devise then nothing happens , the xsane program never opens up .
    should I have left the node name as BRN_XXXX or input like I did the real name
    using kubuntu 7.10
    my printer works fine been working fine for a long time just wanted to *** the scanner

    never mind
    deleted /usr/local/Brother/sane/brsanenetdevice2.cfg file
    got it to work by using the ip instead of the node name
    sudo brsaneconfig2 -a name=SCANNER1 model=MFC-5440CN ip=192.168.001.100

    Step 6:
    In Terminal type the following:

    Ubuntu Code:

    sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules


    Could someone please advise how to modify this for Hardy? I'm stuck.

    This is the content of //usr/local/Brother/sane/models2 in Hardy. My model isn't listed. Is that why the scanner doesn't work?

    apparently it was expecting the library in /usr/lib32 instead of /usr/lib

    Scanner installation went just fine.

    I hope this can help someone else.


    This may be just one file among many that require symbolic links for amd64. See this Brother web page for details:

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Brother HL-4040CN series on Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 amd64

    Code:
    sudo -i
    aptitude install lpr
    mkdir /var/spool/lpd
    dpkg -i --force-all --force-architecture hl4040cnlpr-1.0.0-7.i386.deb
    dpkg -i --force-all --force-architecture hl4040cncups-1.0.0-7.i386.deb
    This installed into
    /usr/local/Brother/Printer/hl4040cn/

    The CUPS web admin, http://localhost:631/printers/
    shows that I have a problem with access to a filter:

    "Filter "/usr/local/Brother/Printer/hl4040cn/cupswrapper/brlpdwrapper_hl4040cn" for printer "HL4040CN" not available: Permission denied"

    I've checked all the file path and file permissions, they seem fine to me (everyone read/execute), eg:

    Code:
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 18160 2007-08-23 10:51 brcupsconfcl1
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  4529 2007-08-23 10:51 brlpdwrapper_hl4040cn
    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root  2265 2007-08-23 10:51 cupswrapperSetup_hl4040cn

    Turns out there is a specific how-to about this issue here:
    http://www.schmut.com/howto/hl-4040-cn-on-kubuntu-gutsy

    Please add this link to the top of this how-to.

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Thank you very much BoardDWorld.

    I'd already done the DCP-115C printer and scanner installs with the downloads from Brother. Printer fine, scanner no go.

    So I simply copied the line:

    # Brother DCP-115C
    SYSFS{idVendor}=="04f9", SYSFS{idProduct}=="018c", MODE="664", GROUP="scanner"

    into /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules restarted, and perfect result!

    Can't get better than that, can we!?

    Excellent how-to.

    Thanks again,

    Michael.

    PS. This is on a Gutsy box. I haven't changed my personal description becos my main box is still Feisty. OK?

    PPS. The advice also worked perfectly with a Brother MFC-3240C install on Ubuntu Ultimate (Kubuntu) Just a matter of "lsusb" and entering the model name and ids into the sane library.

    Absolutely fantastic fix for a silly problem.

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Thank you very much, BoardDWorld. Used your how to to install Brother MFC240C on Hardy Beta AMD-64. Printer and scanner are working (that's all I need for now). Two modifications to the how-to:

    1) Under Hardy, need to do:
    Code:
    sudo mkdir /usr/share/cups/model
    as Hardy does not create this directory. I did this before step 7, as the FAQ at the Brother Web Site indicated this would be needed.

    2) Under Hardy amd-64, no need to perform step 8.

    The scanner driver for 64 bit brscan2, Debian, worked on installation.

    Again, thanks.
