I have a networked MFC-7840W that I am able to print to, but unable to scan to from my Slackware-64 13.37 machine.
I downloaded both brscan3 64-bit rpm files from http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...n.html#brscan3
and used rpm2tgz on them before running installpkg on each.
mutant@minix_slack:~$ brsaneconfig3 -q | grep 7840
0 Brother "MFC-7840W" I:10.25.99.2
mutant@minix_slack:~$ brscan-skey -l
ERROR: No such file or directory [/usr/local/Brother/sane/brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.cfg]
mutant@minix_slack:~$ ls /usr/local/Brother/sane/
Brsane3.ini brsanenetdevice3.cfg brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.sh script
brsaneconfig3 brscan-skey-0.2.1-3 models3 setupSaneScan3
and when I try to run XSane, I get "no devices available" spit back at me. The printer/scanner are up and running as I can ping and print to it from the machine in question. I can also scan from other machine on the network.
Any thoughts and/or help and greatly appreciated.
