Trying out the source and package links from the PKGBUILD, I get 404s all over the place. Probably the download locations of the packages have changed (once again) on the brother website. I'd really like to see those fixed, as I kind of rely on your package for scanning.

Best regards and thank you for maintaining the packages, Fabian

This package installs stuff into /usr/local. Proper packages should not write into /usr/local, instead, they should copy the stuff to the correct places under /usr/bin, /usr/lib, /usr/share, /etc, /var etc. -- whatever is appropriate.

Please fix your package.

Thanks for maintaining!,

This does not mean that this package will work properly with these devices, I only added the missing devices to the udev rules.

You must therefore personally test the package on each printer that supports brscan3, I have only tested it on my printers (MFC-6490CW and DCP-J315W).

Some printers dedicated to the Japanese market were not even present in the brscan3 driver support page, however it seems that they use this driver so I added them.

Currently I think I have added all the printers that support brscan3, if someone is missing please contact me by sending an email to my address that you find in the PKGBUILD.

Thanks for the great package!

Found this in my logs:

/etc/udev/rules.d/50-brscan3.rules:44 ENV key takes '==', '!=', '=', or '+=' operator, assuming '=', but please fix it.

Here is my /etc/udev/rules.d/50-brscan3.rules:44 ATTR{idProduct}=="0259", MODE="0664", GROUP="lp", SYMLINK+="scanner%n", ENV{libsane_matched}:="yes" I suppose := is the problem, it should be = now.

itsnotme commented on 2019-03-09 19:04 (UTC)

Please add the DCP-195C prodID to the rules:


ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0222", MODE="0664", GROUP="scanner", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"

grawlinson commented on 2017-03-09 03:09 (UTC)

Hi, are you able to add the prodID (0229) for MFC-295CN to the rules? Should look like this: ATTR{idProduct}=="0229", MODE="0664", GROUP="lp", SYMLINK+="scanner%n", ENV{libsane_matched}:="yes"

@Ty4kO Sorry, unfortunately Brother does not provide ARM binaries, which the Raspberry Pi would need.

Ty4kO commented on 2016-08-22 05:50 (UTC) (edited on 2016-08-22 08:58 (UTC) by Ty4kO)

Is it possible to install this package on Raspberry Pi 3?

12qu commented on 2016-05-11 11:47 (UTC)

@pigt Fixed, thanks

Thank you. @12qu All is working! note: Your .SRCINFO is not up-to-date. which will fail on some aur helper.
