I have just installed the drivers for my Brother, DCP-115C multifunction printer. I did the following:
I downloaded via Synaptic, all of the relevant Brother files for the MFC 210 . Then I switched on the printer,
a dialog box came up "looking for drivers, " soon ,it asked me ,if I wanted a test page printed; I said "yes " ,and Voila ,success.
I shall try scanning.Shall keep uou informed.
