    This is the outup of dmesg:

    Code:
    Dec  4 21:21:14 Gurkha kernel: [  686.619600] usb 3-3: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'scanimage' sets config #1
    Dec  4 21:21:14 Gurkha kernel: [  686.619627] usb 3-3: usbfs: process 7449 (scanimage) did not claim interface 1 before use
    Dec  4 21:21:15 Gurkha kernel: [  687.674368] usb 3-3: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'scanimage' sets config #1
    Dec  4 21:21:15 Gurkha kernel: [  687.674398] usb 3-3: usbfs: process 7449 (scanimage) did not claim interface 1 before use
    Does it ring the bell to anyone?

    Hmm, do you have a custom kernel?

    Entering "interface 0 claimed by usblp" into Google shows some hints. This one may help:

    Nope. Also blacklisting usblp module doesn't seem to bring any change.

    May just be time/excuse for me to get one of them new wireless printer/fax/scanners
    Resolved this problem rather quickly with the following:
    1.) go to web site:
    http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-12.10/ubuntu-...amd64.deb.html
    2.) connect printer first to ethernet cable
    3.) run the following commands

    1. Update the package index: # sudo apt-get update
    2. Install brother-lpr-drivers-extra deb package: # sudo apt-get install brother-lpr-drivers-extra


    4.) go to system settings / printers
    hopefully a printer MFC-5440CN appears
    5.) print test page
    6.) right mouse click on printer icon in system settings page and duplicate
    7.) rename duplicated printer as MFC-544CN-USB
    8.) select properties
    9.) disconnect ethernet cable, connect USB cable
    10.) in properties field, change Device URL: usb://Brother/MFC-5440CN?serial=BROE6F992284
    11.) print test page using USB printer
    12.) make USB printer system wide default

    Problems scanning with brscan2 with a Brother DCP-8065DN

    Hi there.

    I almost successfully got my Brother DCP-8065DN scanner/printer working under Ubuntu 12.04. I followed all recommendations on the brother page and this thread. I also have another Brother brscan4 model here, which is working without any clue.

    The printer has USB and a network card. But there are two problems remaining when using it as scanner:


    [1] brscan2 (2! - which is the intended version for this device) is not working.
    The scanner can be configured via brsaneconfig2, but will not work scanning with Xsane or equal programs.

    [2] If I install brscan4 (yes 4!), the scanner works flawlessly when scanning black and white or greyscale. Color scans result in very bad experience.

    Output:

    brsaneconfig2 gives nothing (and again: this should work with this scanner)

    brsaneconfig4 gives me:
    Code:
    brsaneconfig4 -q
    
    Devices on network
      0 SCANNER_HOME        "DCP-8065DN"        I:192.168.178.43
    
    scanimage -L
    device `brother4:net1;dev0' is a Brother *SCANNER_HOME DCP-8065DN
    Simplescan:

    • Greyscale- and textscan works.
    • colorscan delivers wrong color (everything is pink)


    Gscan2pdf:

    • greyscale- and textscan works.
    • colorscan works with 150dpi and Color 24bit [FAST]


    Greetings

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

    I'm very new to this, although I've used Ubuntu now since 8.04. What a useful thread!

    I have an MFC-465CN printer/scanner, connected via USB which eventually worked perfectly when I updated to Ubuntu 10.04 on my desk-based computer.

    I now have an Acer Aspire 5560 laptop on which I loaded Ubuntu 12.04 (32bit). After a number of tries, using information in this thread and the Brother website I eventually got the machine to work from the laptop but only as a network printer. It still works from the Ubuntu 10.04 system as both network and USB printer.

    With or without the network cable attached, if I then connect the MFC-465 via the USB port the laptop computer recognizes it as a MFC465 printer, insists on connecting it a a generic text printer, which is absolutely useless as others in this thread have found!

    Can anyone offer a solution, please? (expressed in very simple terms please!)

    Much to my surprise and delight, somehow or other I have connected it as a network scanner with no problems at all from both machines!

    hi morgan;

    I wondered if you were familiar with the CUPS interface using your browser

    if you paste

    http://localhost:631/printers/

    into a spare window on your browser, this should allow you to manage things..does it allow you to specify different things?

    .......also from MENU: Administration: Printing ..can you open the printing interface and right-clicking on the icons select properties for each printer?

    Many thanks.
    I have used the CUPS interface, but that does not seem to allow me to change things. Nor does Applications/System Tools/ System Settings/Printers.
    However if I select Printers from the menu (as for shutting down etc) then I could change it to use the Brother Driver for the USB connection.
    Having printed the test page from that window, though, I have to give it the three fingered salute to get out of the Printer Settings page! But it works on both USB and network connections! Many thanks, again, pdc.

    I think this might be helpful if I was actually sure that the printer I am trying to use at work is compatible with linux! Brother MFCJ5910

    I did find and download drivers but still seem to be getting it wrong.

    Just to make life really hard there is no instruction for actually printing a document as opposed to a photo from a flash drive - which of course, would save a lot of bother.

    Wondering if anyone can help me out on either - thanks.
    Still deciding what to say.....
