Brother DCP-7065DN, Ubuntu 14.04 64bit: Can print to network printer but cannot use the scan function

I have a dcp-7060D - I have installed all the programs, it does print now. But it is a local USB printer.

I want to use Simple Scan or Sane.. The above gives help if you are doing it through a network and assign it an ip address.. but no help yet on how to get the applications or scan buttons working if its a local usb device.


  • scanimage does find the device, but this does not seem to help me use it. james@james-550P5C-550P7C:~$ scanimage -L device `brother4:bus6;dev1' is a Brother DCP-7060D USB scanner – James Schofield Jan 8 '16 at 16:16
