Linux Mint 19 (18.04) x64 with Brother DCP-W315J [SOLVED]

you can download the printer drivers (.deb) by googling or from here:
http://support.brother.com/g/b/download ... 315w_eu_as
and following the instructions.

you can also download the scanner drivers (.deb) from above but the sane libraries are put into the wrong directory.
you can remedy this by setting symbolic links;

Code: Select all

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother3.so /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother3.so.1 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother3.so.1.0.7 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/
you can register your ip based scanner quickly by:

Code: Select all

sudo brsaneconfig3 -a name=DCP-J315W model=DCP-J315W ip=1.2.3.4
works for me.
