@Lifthanger:

sorry, haven't tried installing fax - for that I use it too seldomly

you can try installing it via rpm or dpkg

copying it over manually also works but there might be issues with permissions


@zoidie:

I don't have that file here - it seemed to exist for an older version of the driver

you have the latest ?


concerning pure 64bit: I doubt that it'll work

(that file on my hdd is from 2007, not sure how old it's originally)

Got the latest from Brother's site - although this is dated March 2006. It just seems a bit odd that Brother offer 64 bit scanner drivers but only 32 printer drivers...

If I set the printer up on another machine and share it, will the 64 bit machine still need the driver installed?

Edit: I have now installed the printer on another machine and have shared both the printing and scanning functions across the network.

Hey guys,

does anyone have an idea of the reason why if I connect my Printer/Scanner to an USB 3.0 port, the scanner doesn't work?
I always get something like "failed to open device: 'brother2:bus1;dev2': Invalid Argument" and if I plug the scanner to the USB 2.0, this doesn't happen?

Is some other kernel module necessary to get the scanner working over a 3.0 port?

To me it happens for usb2 too.
Code:
failed to initialize device: Invalid Argument"


Any ideas?
