View Full Version : [ubuntu] network scanner not detected

December 17th, 2012, 08:01 AM
I've used Brother MFC-8860DN as a networked printer and scanner for at least two years now, but cannot scan any longer.

I've upgraded to 12.10 a few weeks back and am not sure if that is the cause of the problem.

sane-find-scanner finds no scanner

brscan-skey -l finds

MFC-8860 : brother2:net1;dev0 : Active

not sure what to try next

I've been going through hp-check, hp-setup and hp-plugin to make my HP Officejet Pro L7590 network scanner work on Linux Mint 14. There may be something similar for your scanner as well.
