I recently switched from Windows 7 to Linux. My choice fell on Ubuntu. Unfortunately, there is a problem with my Brother DCP-7030 (it's a printer, scanner and copier in one). I downloaded and installed drivers according to the instructions on Brother's official website:
Installation of the printer drivers went smoothly and it works correctly. Then I installed drivers for the scanner, but this one doesn't work. Ubuntu doesn't see it. I searched the net looking for a solution. After installation, I did as suggested by the device producer in this thread:
But it doesn't work for me. I also found a few topics in our forum, but the latest one is from 2012 and advices there also doesn't work.
And something strange is going on when I trying to use a "simple scan". When I run it and press the "scan" button, it displays "connecting to the scanner ..." and it lasts indefinitely. When I tried to close the program, it froze.
The device is connected to the computer through the USB. The printer and scanner were working properly on windows, so this is not a device fault. So I am asking you for help.
p.s. sorry for possible language mistakes ;)
