Successfully setup Brother DCP-135C for scanning in Slackware 13.0


Hi,

I was trying to setup my Brother DCP-135C to scan for Slackware 13.0 (stable, with patches)


These are the following steps taken:

1. Download the brscan2-0.2.5-1.i386.deb and brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.i386.deb driver files from http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...nload_scn.html

2. Use the command "ar x" to extract files from the driver files. Used "tar xvf" on data.tar.gz files to unpack the actual files to be installed. Used "tar xvf" to look into control.tar.gz to know what command to run post installation. Repacked them into Slackware packages using makepkg.

(Or use alien tool as suggested by http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...+scanner+alien)

3. Depending on how the drivers are repacked, you might need to run these commands (hints take from control.tar.gz)
# /usr/local/Brother/sane/setupSaneScan2 -i
# /usr/local/Brother/sane/brscan-skey-0.2.1-3.sh 0

4. Added the following line in /lib/udev/rules.d/80-libsane.rules.
I added these lines near other definitions of Brother devices.
-----
# Brother DCP-135C
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="01ce", MODE="0666", GROUP="scanner", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"
-----

5. Please ensure your userid is part of group "scanner". Run xsane.


I hope you are successful.


Best regards,
Alvin Chey
