I'm using brscan4 and can ping it using brsaneconfig4 and it finds it but i cannot scan from the computer using either simple scan or xsane image scanning. Both programs don't show the scanner as being present. Brother drivers downloaded and installed
dpkg -l | grep Brother ii brscan-skey 0.2.4-1 amd64 Brother Linux scanner S-KEY tool ii brscan4 0.4.2-1 amd64 Brother Scanner Driver ii cupswrapperdcp7065dn 2.0.4-2 i386 Brother DCP7065DN CUPS wrapper driver ii dcp7065dnlpr 2.1.0-1 i386 Brother DCP-7065DN LPR driver ii printer-driver-ptouch 1.3-8 amd64 printer driver Brother P-touch label printers
If i press the scan button on the machine it tells me to "Check Connection"
I've tried everything i can on the forums to no avail.
the only thing that i can think of that I hadn't done was, in terminal created a scanner using brsaneconfig4:
brsaneconfig4 -a name=DCP-7065DN model=DCP7065DN ip=192.168.1.201
Get the IP Address by using the Menu button on the printer/scanner, select network, then TCP / IP, then IP Address.
I spent hours trawling the forums but the scanner started working when I RESTARTED THE COMPUTER and all was well. xsane picked it up and simple scan.
Still can't use the scan button on the machine but not worried about it.
