I lately started using Linux and thus I am new to installation mechanisms, drivers etc. I decided to use Linux Mint 13 (Linux 12.04 LTS kernel) and hope that this was a wise decision for starting with Linux.
Now I need to get my hardware / peripherals working, namely the scanning device of the above mentioned (a little old but still fine) printer.
I installed (or I think I did so) the drivers from the Brother pages
and the printer works. Basically I have all settings that I have in Windows, but not as polished... The scanner is not recognized, yet.
Now I need some step-by-step help to get the scanner working and I am sure that for an expert it will be very simple to find out the problem and to correct it. Maybe it is just one line of terminal instruction.
