## Scanning with Brother DCP-7065DN in Ubuntu

By admin | September 12, 2020

First, make sure the printer is detected in lsusb:

$lsusb | grep Brother Bus 001 Device 011: ID 04f9:024a Brother Industries, Ltd  Then, either add a udev rule to ensure that we have permission to access it, or use the following one-time hack: sudo chmod 777 /dev/bus/usb/001/011  Now, install the correct driver for the printer from support.brother.com. For the DCP-7065DN on Ubuntu 64-bit, the following package worked: 5937473842d95571b0d8ff50d6095198 brscan4-0.4.9-1.amd64.deb  Check that sane-find-scanner can see it: $ sane-find-scanner
# 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

# Your USB scanner was (probably) detected. It may or may not be supported by
# SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage.

# Not checking for parallel port scanners.

# 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.


Finally, check that scanimage can see it. If this succeeds, then the scanner is operational (and can be used from Simple Scan or any other scan software).
