I'm running Ubuntu 18.04 and a brother DCP-375CW, a printer and scanner all in one. I downloaded the drivers and used the Driver Install Tool by brother.

This is the result: the system says the drivers are installed. The printer is actually working. But Simple Scan claims that the drivers are still missing.

I used the method to install the scanner like in 16.04 (see here Brother scanner not working in Ubuntu 16.04 though driver installed)

I ran the Brother Driver Install Script and made the necessary rights changes in


This does not seem to work in 18.04 anymore.

Maybe the Installer Script installs the Drivers in the wrong folder for 18.04?
