Ubuntu – How to configure (Brother) Laser Scanner


I am not able to configure the scanner of my Brother DCP-7030.

When I try to scan the documents, the printer shows the display "Connecting to PC", but does not scan the document. I am however able to print the documents.

Any solution is much appreciated.

If you have correctly installed the drivers?

  • Open a terminal and run this sudo lsusb

  • Where your printer / scanner is (My scanner/printer was listed as 002/004)

    sudo chmod a+w /dev/bus/usb/002/004
