For my Brother DCP-357c the latest suggestion also worked:
Installing rpm and glibc-32bit from the Solus repos and then run the official Brother driver install script.
For my Brother DCP-195C , I installed rpm and glibc-32bit from the Solus repos and then run the official Brother drive install script for DCP-195C. ( don't know why glibc-32bit is needed because my PC is 64-bit, but installed it anyway)
The printer works.
The scanner does not work because simple-scan "finds" my microsoft web-cam instead of the brother-device.
When I start scanning, I am getting a picture of myself instead of a scan-image.
In the settings of simple-scan there is an option to choose the scanner.
There the web-cam is listed as the only "scanner-device" to select.
No brother DCP-195C .
The DCP-195C needs brscan3 . It is installed.
Code: Select all
$ rpm -qa | grep brscan3
What can I do ?
Maybe somewhere in a config-file replacing the webcam by the brother device ?
In the meanwhile I found this tutorial
I installed a few things via the Software center:
Before you start following packages needs to be installed:
You can install them in Software Center.
Then I ran the driver-install script from brother again.
After a reboot, simple-scan suddenly said: "Ready to scan DCP-195C"
When I click on "start scan", it says "cannot connect to scanner".
When running simple-scan from the terminal " sudo simple-scan" as root, it connects to the scanner and does scan properly.
Now just a small change should do the job, but I cannot find the way to manage it.
