    This directory is also empty, at least on my machine, Ubuntu 8.04 32 bit... thanks anyways
    Irene, I went and looked on my laptop which has 8.04 Hardy, the nearest files go from:
    "... 40-basic-permissions.rules ~~~ 40-permissions.rules ~~~ 45-fuse.rules ~~~ 45-linmtp7.rules..."
    There is no "45-libmtp8.rules".

    On my other machine (Intrepid 8.10) we have, in the same directory,
    "... libmtp8.rules..." directly in the udev directory; but there is no "45" in front of the name.

    I reckon that these files must change according to distro.
    Sometimes they are the same, sometimes a bit of research is needed, I should imagine.

    Regards

    John

    Worked brilliantly for printing, but alas, scanning is so far a no-go. Xsane doesn't recognise the printer for some absurd reason...
    Using a brother MFC5860CN on Ubuntu64. What's odd is that last time I followed this guide, it worked ferpectly on Ubuntu32...
    Great guide though!

    Why not just using

    System - Administration - Users and groups- User rights - Use scanner ?

    The scanner fix for Brother MFC-8440 doesn't work for Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty because /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules doesn't exist! MFC-8440 requires brscan, not brscan2.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks for the original guide. It worked well for my DCP-560CN to get the printer working on the network. But I had to go back to the Brother site for the scanner. However, all is well .........at the moment.

    I think line 53, and what did you change exacly cause the line is:
    Code:
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", NAME="bus/usb/$env{BUSNUM}/$env{DEVNUM}", MODE="0666"
    in mine case.

    I also added:
    Code:
    SYSFS{idVendor}=="04f9", SYSFS{idProduct}=="01e4", MODE="0666", GROUP="scanner", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"
    to
    Code:
    /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane-extras.rules
    but it didn't help

    Great step by step guide! However, my printer all of a sudden doesn't work?!

    I installed it less than 30 minutes ago! It printed the test page, it even printed two documents.

    I restarted and tried printing something else and I get a message "printer may not be connected". I know its connected because the scanner works great...printing not so much.

    I also noticed ubuntu installed the same printer after I had restarted so I have two icons of the same printer but neither work?

    Any suggestions to fixing this? I followed the guide over and over again but no luck

    Is there a way to just remove all the printers present and all the settings related to it with out the fresh install?

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes. I had a similar problem. I think I fixed it by following the notes around Step 9. Try this.
    Just think how boring life would be without Ubuntu

    Re: HOWTO: Ubuntu All Brother Printer & Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Hello all. I'm trying to get my printer (DCP-120C) working over the network. It is hosted on a Windows XP machine, and I'm using Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty" beta x86_64. I've installed the drivers and followed the OP to the letter, and I see the printer in my CUPS page, but when I go to print a test page to it it says "Pending", then the page refreshes and I see "Stopped", with nothing appearing on the printer. Any suggestions?
