simple scan install error

Post by jkc57 »

In an effort to get my brother multi printer (scanner function-wireless option) working I uninstalled xsane and simple scan. Reloaded the brothers driver all good for printing but when I attempt to install the scan utilities (simple scan or xsane) I get the following error:

E: /var/cache/apt/archives/libsane_1.0.23-3ubuntu3.1_amd64.deb: trying to overwrite shared '/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules', which is different from other instances of package libsane:amd64

Originally the multi-function printer was recognized by the scan utilites but would error in communication when attempting a scan

Recent install of Mint 17.2 Cinammon on Acer B113 which has gone flawlessly except for the scan function on a Brother MFC-J6920DW
