Hello fellow Sabayon users
I have a number of issues to sort out.
The first is my new Brother MFC685CW all in one printer.
ok I have installed the printer as a ethernet network printer and installed the drivers from the brother website http://solutions.brother.com/linux/sol/ ... ivers.html
clicked on the link for my model and I get the driver package for the MFC665CW....
oh well dosn't matter give them a try anyhow problem is they are rolled for RPM and Debian flavor of linux no problem found this handy howto http://gentoo-wiki.com/Brother_MFC_420CN/Cups
and followed it just swapping the names for my driver package... hey presto it works I can now network print to my MFC....woohoo!!!!
The problem is I cant get XSANE to see my scanner but kooka can ???? and to get the scanner button on the MFC to work I need to get SANE to work.
any tips? or request for log extracts/config files? to help me work out what is going on
I am guessing that it probably has something to do with how sane back end works in as far as talking to the network rather than usb.... but I haven't hit the right howto yet as all i can find is howto's for sane usb fixes.
