I am looking to install brother MFC 7360.I have installed printer but as scanner concerned it is not working everytime when I try to run xsane it says device not connected, When I try to add brscan-skey to startup program it asks for command line. I am not sure what shall I write in command line. please help me thank and regards, Gourik Goswami
For USB you have to edit the /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules with root-rights and insert
in top of
"# The following rule will disable ..."
look at lsusb for the id like 04f9 is and save the file Restart udev sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart or sudo service udev restart
good luck mick
Follow instructions given in Brother website
In the download page, you should check for matching version (MFC-7360n), I think brscan4 should work.
I just got this printer and had the same problem...
I enabled printing (mahalo brother for supporting linux), but scanning was not forthcoming.
I installed the drivers provided by Brother:
And still nada...
After some work and research, I found that sane (Scanner Access Now Easy), the API that provides access to the scanner in GNU/Linux does not currently support scanner connectivity over the network.
So I hooked up my printer/scanner via USB and was able to connect, sort of... I also had to change the permissions of the device>
To find out where the printer was mounted:
then changed the device permissions (full access for everyone):
Now I'm able to use the Ubuntu simple scan utility to do scanning as long as I'm connected via usb.
I'd love to know if anyone has any solutions for Network scanning on this model!
