    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.
    Thank you, I'll run through the installation myself soon and update the how-to accordingly.

    G'Day Forum Readers, Thanks in advance

    I need some help in getting a Brother DCP150C Printer/Scanner to work with Xsane Image Scanner under 64bit (Intel) Hardy Herron 8.04.
    I have successfully installed the above printer/scanner on two 32bit Gusty Gibbon 7.04 computers using BroadDWorld's post HOWTO: Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!, and using the Brothers Web site for reference, I have read all 142 entries plus other post on Installing scanners.

    I have now updated one computer to Hardy Heron 8.04 64bit. The printer installation went well no problems and all functions work well, I ran into problems when installing the scanner side of the unit. After closing down the unit and removing the USB cable I followed the steps 1, 2 3 ,3a & 3b, – 4. I omitted step 5 as I already knew the Vendor ID & Product ID. When I tried to edit: sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules (Step 6) error no file found. I can use the scanner by pressing the Scan Button on the Scanners Control Panel but this saves the scanned file to /root/brscan which is hard to remove when the task is completed. When I start-up Xsane Image Scanner it show the scanner (available devices) clicking on the scanner button a pop-up appears, Error - Failed to open device 'brother2:bus2:dev1': Error during device I/O.

    Is there anyway I can correct the above problem so I can use Xsane Image Scanner. I tried various options (create /45-libsane.rules and installing and/or re-installed: sane, sane-utils, xsane, xsane-common), or should I do a re-install (everything and clear out posible errore I have created.

    Thanks again, Old Kevin

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

    Hello, I am fairly new to Ubuntu, and I am having trouble installing my Brother DCP-135c.

    I have followed this tutorial, but I have run into some trouble. I use Ubuntu 7.10.

    I have downloaded the CCUPS and the LPR files to my desktop.

    This is what happened:

    sameer@sameer-laptop:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all dcp135clpr-1.0.1-1.i386.deb
    (Reading database ... 111991 files and directories currently installed.)

    Hardy Update

    Just installed Hardy. I have a DCP-7020 that worked well under Gutsy using this guide.
    Working from a fresh install, I had the same experience as avtolle.
    Creating the directory "/usr/share/cups/model" solved my printer driver installation problems. I did not have to manually add the device ID. My scanner was recognized immediately.

    What an awesome How To!

    It worked nicely. Thank you ever so much. I was having so much trouble getting my printer (connected to a separate Windows computer) to work through a networked Ubuntu laptop.
