This driver also works for DS-640

Hello, due to various circumstances, I've disowned this (and other) packages. Feel free to adopt.

I have the same issue as user ckafi below. When plugging my 740D to my Asus motherboard, all my USB devices stop responding.

When booting with the scanner already plugged in i have no issue. Do you know what i could do to solve this ?

Thank you for this package! I'd like to propose to move the binaries into their canonical location at /usr/bin, to make them available in the PATH and to harmonize with brscan4:

Does anyone have an issue where their scanner is "jamming" on a long page or receipt? It's not actually jamming but it gives up if the page is too long. I have a ADS-1200 and I could have sworn this worked in the past.

Sorry for the delay, no need to orphan, I'll update tomorrow. (Damn, you don't need to file an orphan request 3 days after out of date!) (Edit: updated)

I had some problems with my DS-640, where connecting it would crash the xHCI host and disconnecting all USB devices. Installing this package without libusb-compat fixed it. Not sure who's to blame, maybe my ASUS motherboard does some wacky stuff with USB.

Works for me with Brother DS-635, thanks! I did update the PKGBUILD to install 1.2.12 (not sure if necessary). Simple as changing:

@razerei and @wounc78,

Thank you for this AUR pkg/driver :D It works as expected with my Brother DS740-D portable scanner -- except for the duplex functionality, which I personally didn't expect to work after doing my pre-buy research. The xsane GUI has an option to select duplex operation, but it doesn't seem to do anything/be wired up 8\

But your driver pkg works perfectly well! Thank you!!! :)
