    Installing a Brother MFC-J220 printer in Slackware 3.1 32bit


    Thanks for mentioning me.

    I return to this post a year later. I would like so much to be able to get the brscan-skey to work. Alas, it does not. Here is the output:
    root@porteus:/mnt/sda5/32bit_v21/porteus/modules# cd /opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey/
    root@porteus:/opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey# ls
    brscan-skey*          brscan-skey-0.2.4-0.cfg  brscan_mail.config      script/
    brscan-skey-0.2.4-0**  brscan_mailmessage.txt
    root@porteus:/opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey# ./
    root@porteus:/opt/brother/scanner/brscan-skey# brscan-skey 
    bash: brscan-skey: command not found
    Any suggestion?

    It seems Brother has now installed brscan-skey to /opt/brother/scanner like you stated. Blog updated. Thanks.

    Change to the sane directory.


    cd /usr/local/Brother/sane




    This creates a brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.cfg file in the same folder.

    That's it! To run the server daemon, type brscan-skey. You should now be able to scan by using your printer's

    **************************************************************************************************** ***********

    That part simply does not work for me.

    Once I install brscan-skey-0.2.3-0.i386 the packages are installed in /opt/brother/scanner/ instead of /usr/local/Brother/sane. In addition, moving the files in /usr/local/Brother/sane will not do a better job, then keeping them in the /opt folder to start the bash file I get nothing at the command :brscan-skey.

    If anyone has some suggestion, it will be appreciated.
