I wonder if 'vuescan' supports brother better, i just today bought it for my old hp 5370c which is detected by sane but it has never been able to handle it correctly. Vuescan demo is also on slackbuilds.

I tried these commands by replacing them with brother4:bus2;dev3 since im using USB, and both give me 37 bytes files each and output the following in terminal:

Code:
scanimage: rounded value of br-x from 215.9 to 215.88
scanimage: rounded value of br-y from 355.6 to 355.567
I don't know what that means. Also, not sure this matters, but i'm logged in as root in Slackware, as opposed to just a regular user in Ubuntu. So, i do not get the root warning prompt from XSane to "Continue at your own risk" in Ubuntu.

Vuescan does list MFC-J870DW as supported on their website. Ubuntu has Simple Scan too, but i think that is based off XSane.
