Can you tell us what driver you're using for your Brother? Is it a CUPS driver? If not have you checked if there is a CUPS driver for your printer/scanner? I have used Brother printers for years (now its an HL2130) and the CUPS drivers have always worked very well.

Hi,

could you please open a terminal and post the output of
Code:
groups
This will show you which groups you as a user belong to. For a multifunction device (printer+scanner) it is necessary to be member of the lp as well as the scanner group

Also execute the commands
Code:
sane-find-scanner
and
Code:
scanimage -L
and post the output here. If sane-find-scanner doesn't find the scanner please execute it with sudo (or as root).

Markus

Have you installed the scanner driver? Drivers and instructions can be accessed from here. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com.../en/index.html

Apparently your device uses the brother4 driver (same as my MFC-J825DW). With my setup, the driver defaults to using the '24bit Color[Fast]' mode. (Check the output of 'scanimage -h'). That option does not work for me. I have no problems when I use the '24bit Color' mode instead.
