  1. I have a Brother multifunction device (MFC-240C). It was running just fine some years ago when I Funtoo ran on 32 bit station. Nowadays only printer works in a Funtoo 64 bit environment while it is fully supported in a Debian 64 bit environment. Right driver is installed, rpm edition of 64 bit brscan2. Please note that printer drivers are 32 bit. There are no 64 bit available. media-gfx/simple-scan and media-gfx/sane-backends are installed. Both simple-scan and scanimage -L report that scanner is not detected no matter how commands are run (as root or as user). My user belongs to scanner and lp groups : guy@Funtoo ~ $ groups lp wheel audio cdrom video cdrw usb users scanner guy Rules for Brother are properly set.

It may or may not be supported by # SANE. Try scanimage -L and read the backend's manpage. # Not checking for parallel port scanners. # Most Scanners connected to the parallel port or other proprietary ports # can't be detected by this program. # You may want to run this program as root to find all devices. Once you # found the scanner devices, be sure to adjust access permissions as # necessary. What it happens when runnning scanimage : guy@Funtoo ~ $ scanimage -L No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different, check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages). Brother and scanner modules are in /usr/lib64 and /usr/lib64/sane with symlinks to /usr/lib and /usr/lib/sane accordingly. Is there anyone to tell me where to look at ?
