Would like help for Brother MFC 5840CN Scanner and PCfax utilization.
scanner is reporting supported device is busy and cannot scan to file.
I would also like to set up and use the Pcfax!
I don't remember what headway that I've made toward utilizing the pcfax tho I think it's function had to do with not having a program like Open Office that supports it yet... It's been a while since I fooled with either of them. I have short term memory problems and often lose track of where I've been and what/where I want to do/ go....Sooo any help is appreciated! Thanx%:)SW
PS the memory thing curtails my use of command line beyond copy and paste type functionality....sorry but I'm doing my best to shed M$!!! Getting this working would allow me to do that and be 100% Linux. BTW I had scanner working in Ubuntu 9.04 which I have no idea how it happened but I think an updated stopped that as it no longer works in 9.04.
The following files are shown to be installed:
xsane 0.996.2ubuntu1.1, xsane-common 0.996.2ubuntu1.1, brscan2 0.2.5-1, hplip 3.9.8-1ubuntu2, gnome screensaver 2.28.0-0ubuntu3.4; show in Synaptic as being installed when looking for 'SANE'
These and brscan-skey show up when synaptic is searched with word scanner]
[searching synaptic for MFC 5840CN it shows Brother lpr 1.2.0-2-0 and cups 1.2.1-oubuntu3 and Brmpcfaxlpd 1.0.0-2 and Brmpcfaxcups 1.0.0-2 installed]
