    MFC L2470DW scanner drivers

    Fairly new to Ubuntu, back from 6.1 version 5 years ago. I am now using Ubuntu 18.04, I am installing the drivers for my Brother MFC l2740DW from the terminal, I already printed a test page and try to scan on the simple scan utility, I am anyway stuck in the terminal to this message and I do not know how to handle it form here:
    dpkg -i --force-all brscan-skey-0.2.4-1.amd64.deb

    Welcome to the Forums Giuliano1,

    I have a Brother MFC-7360N that I have to reinstall each time I install an upgraded version of Xubuntu so I am familiar with what you are trying to do; however, I don't see anything that unusual in your post. It all looks pretty normal to me.

    Is this the network address of the MFC-L2740DW? ip=

    It shows that you are in the root terminal, to exit, type exit then press Enter
    Please show the results of this command from the terminal, scanimage -L If it is installed it will look something similar to mine,
    scanimage -L
    device `brother4:net1;dev0' is a Brother MFC-7360N MFC-7360N
    By the way, I wrote a tutorial on installing Brother drivers a few years ago. I just looked it over, and it is pretty much the same now as then. It can be found here,

    I am not an expert on anything, but I pretend to be one at times.
    Software expands to consume available system resources.

    Thank you, it shows exactly like yours:

    root@giuliano-HP-Compaq-dc7900-Small-Form-Factor:/home/giuliano/Downloads# scanimage -L
    device `brother4:net1;dev0' is a Brother MFC-L2740DW MFC-L2740DW

    So it looks everything is OK, I will just exit the terminal, sorry I was assuming I was missing something.
