I am rather new to fixing problems; no one seems to be able to give me any guidance so I am turning to you. I have just installed the scanner drivers for my mfc5460cn. Everything is okay except for the connection. lsusb shows my machine at

Bus 002 Device 005: ID 04f9:01b7 Brother Industries, Ltd MFC-5460CN Remote Setup

However, xsane is searching for it at Bus 1 Dev 1.

How do I reconcile this? How can I change Bus / Dev?
