Brother mfc-9120cn - unable to find scanner

Postby newbie101 on Thu Apr 25, 2013 11:06 pm

I have installed Mint 14 Nadia and Gscan2. I am able to print to the Brother but unable to scan. Gscan2 returns " error opening device: invalid argument". Simple scan returns:" failed to scan - unable to connect to scanner". Yet, identifies Scan Source as Brother MFC_9120CN.

Sane-find-scanner in terminal returns: # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
# result is different from what you expected, first make sure your
# scanner is powered up and properly connected to your computer.

# No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

# No USB scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
# you have loaded a kernel driver for your USB host controller and have setup
# the USB system correctly. See man sane-usb for details.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

Have tried the drivers on Brother website without success.

Your direction would be greatly appreciated...

# Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports
# can't be detected by this program.

# You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you
# found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as
# necessary.
