Brother MFC 7860dw Scan Button

Postby juicer on Fri Nov 29, 2013 7:16 pm

I am trying to enable the Brother MFC 7860dw Scan Button on the machine itself.
Within Windows 7 or XP, there is an option to enable the Scan button on the machine so that it shows each machine enabled to recieve the scan from the machine's LED screen.
I can scan from Simple Scan or XSANE from within the program but can't find a way to enable the Scan button on the machine to recognize the Linux mkachine.
Am I in the right Forum? Is this question better suited for Software or is there a SANE Forum?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

While I have been able to enable the Scan-to button on the MFC7860dw for scanning single pages, I haven't been successful in scanning multiple pages from the Automatic Document Feeder.
Brother Linux support rep confirmed this on his machine this morning and was advancing the bug for consideration.
Scanning multiple pages works fine from XSane or Simple scan. Linux Mint 15.
I am not sure if I ever was able to correctly place the script mentioned in the link above.
Any suggestions?
