View Full Version : [ubuntu] xsane: scanning for devices

May 27th, 2009, 03:23 AM
I have successfully installed my Brother MFC420CN as a scanner with Xsane. However, after leaving it for a while and trying o open the application, I get a small window that says "scanning for devices" which disappears shortly. A minute later I get another small window which says "Failed to open device 'brother2;net1;dev0' Invalid argument".

Then nothing. Help please. Recently upgraded to latest release of Ubuntu, and had similar problem with previous release. Thanks.
