Hey Allen...I hate to be a pain but I'm a little leery of modifying this file. I see where you moved at least one line up. If I provide my email address can you email me and I can respond with the attached file so maybe you can modify it, send it back and I can just replace the original? If not..I understand. Tks

Save the original.
Code:
cp /etc/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules /tmp/40-libsane.rules
Then you can easily revert.
This is not a critical file for anything apart from scanner access.

The file you attached is named "40-libsane.txt". As per post#15, are you actually editing the file named "40-libsane.rules"?

The file I posted was exactly from "40-libsane.rules". I saved a copy as a .txt file on my desktop in order to post it here.

When the software looks right, it may be time to try physically disconnecting and reconnecting the hardware or even cycling the power.

As part of the driver install, you should have a file 'brsaneconfig2'.
Perhaps running, with root privileges, 'brsaneconfig2 -d', will offer a clue.
Also, check that your model appears in the list from 'brsaneconfig2 -q'.

My googling suggests that some other users of Linux Mint 18 have had success by copying files installed by the Brother installer into the /usr/lib64 directory structure into the /usr/lib directory structure.
e.g. https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=225264
https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtop...r+dcp#p1188308
https://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?t=226115

The details of what needs to be copied are listed here. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+s...575/comments/3
You just want the brscan2 files:
Quote:
/usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so.1.0.0
/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1.0.7
/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1
/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so
/usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so.1.0.1
/usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so
/usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so.1
/usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so
/usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so.1

Folder Files

Attached are the contents of the 2 folders (/usr/lib64/ and /usr/lib). From what I can see it appears that only 3 files are missing from each folder. All the other files are there. (please verify). Thoughts?

/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1.0.7
/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1
/usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so

Update...the files are under the following /usr/lib64/sane. Where do you suggest I copy those three files...if at all?

Try copying the directory /usr/lib64/sane to /usr/lib so that /usr/lib/sane is created.
