My Brother DCP 7055W does not scan. I can print ok, but the scanner won't work.
I am running Ubuntu 13.10 32- bit on AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ × 2.
In the previous version of Ubuntu and with another Printer/Scanner Simple Scan and Printing was working fine.
Now after the update -
I can print-OK. But when I try printing 2 pages on one page, it shows it corrrectly in the preview but as a print the pages come out in the portrait form with one and a half page print in landscape on it.
From http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/download_prn.html#DCP-153C , I have installed the cupswrapper driver and lpr driver.
How can I fix it so that when I want to print two pages on one, it does what I want it to do???
Now with the scanner
I have installed from the http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/download_scn.html the scan-key-tool 32bit and the brscan 32-bit. I have tried uninstalling, then re-installing, xsane and Simple Scan (through synaptic), but it still wont work.
For some reason in Synaptic Package Manager, the only entries under Brother are the lpr, cupswapper, & brscan-skey files, the Br scan file is not listed.
Simple scan reports "Failed to scan. Unable to start scan, & XSane reports " Failed to Start scanner: Invalid Argument.
With the windows laptop, it is perfectly printing, scanning and even scanning over wireless.
I have tried numerous times to get the scanner running, and printer to print properly the two pages on one, but to no avail. Argghhhh...... I hate to have to start the windows laptop scan and then transfer to the Ubuntu desktop.
Any help will be sincerely appreciated.
