    Brother MFC210 / DCP115 on Oneiric

    Does anybody installed the drivers for the Brother DCP115 or MFC210 on Ubuntu Oneiric? This is what I've made:

    • installed the brscan2 driver
    • added user to group scanner
    • added this to /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules:

      # Brother scanners
      ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"
    • restarted the OS (of course)

    Result: No scanner found

    Does anyone has the same problem? I'm thinking the removal of HAL may cause this, but I'm not sure (those lines are for Ubuntu 11.04, it may change in Oneiric).

    Thanks in advance.

    Hmmm....did you make sure you fulfilled the pre-reqs before installation?

    Yes, and installed csh, checked groups and port permissions, etc. Somethings wrong with Oneiric and Brother, I've installed again this printer on Natty and it works perfectly.

    Ok, let's go with the magic.

    - First you must install the brscan2 driver from here:

    - Second you must edit /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules and add this as the last scanner (after HP ones, f.ex.)

    # Brother scanners
    ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

    - Third execute all this in a terminal

    sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so.1.0.1 /usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so /usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so.1 /usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so /usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so.1 /usr/lib

    sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1.0.7 /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1 /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so /usr/lib/sane

    sudo echo 'SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", MODE="0666"' >> /lib/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules

    This will relocate the libraries to the right place and enable every user to scan.

    Too tricky, dear Ubuntu and Brother people. Things like this make Ubuntu harder to use for newbies (and for me).

    Oops, I'm THAT people of Ubuntu!

    Hi

    I think you only need the terminal commands if you have multiple users. Otherwise just the first and second items in the above are required.

    Ubuntu has something like "one user and a half". The initial user has a superuser password (fake root) without being a root, so really the system is multiuser enabled.

    And the third one is requiered as the libraries cannot be find by the sane parser, unless you're on Natty or earlier. This is a significative change of "libusb" devices.
