@yywrobbie: I suggest to validate if the driver is working correctly on other linux distributions. Have you tried sane-frontends, i.e. xsane?

Unable to scan US letter-sized documents on my MFC-L2700DW. On skanlite it shows that the maximum width of scannable area is 8.3 inches which is smaller than the width of a US letter (8.5 inches). Same thing with gscan2pdf where the maximum width is 211.90mm (~8.3 in) which suggests an issue with the scanner driver or the configuration of it.

updated. Thanks @lgm @ua4000: The 'Required by xxx (optional)' tag has to be provided by the other package, in this case brother-dcpj4110dw

Thanks ! Got my Brother DCP-J4110DW working.

You could add: Required by brother-dcpj4110dw (optional)

Have a good day!

I installed this package and ran the following command:

brsaneconfig4 -a name=Brother_MFC-L2740DW model=Brother_MFC-L2740DW nodename=hostname.domain

At this point scanimage --list-devices showed the device, and scanimage successfully scanned the paper I had in there. It was super easy.

Again (like stated before on 2020-03-18)... The brsan4.install file should get this right without user interaction. Calling /opt/brother/scanner/brscan4/setupSaneScan4 -i does exactly that - adding 'brother4' to /etc/sane.d/dll.conf... Don't know why this does not work for you... Did you by chance configure addditional restrictions for pacman? If noone answers the question I won't be able to find a cause for the missing entry in /etc/sane.d/dll.conf. And it won't help to just add it like you suggested. Think about uninstallation and update...

There's a drop in folder that can be used to make this package work out of the box.

echo brother4 > /etc/sane.d/dll.d/brother4.conf

Any reason why not to include it in the package?

Makes sense. I didn't understand this error was from Git, fixed now :)

Looks like yay downloads sources to the folder with PKGBUILD. That's why when agree.html became a versioned file, Git refused to check it out over already present unversioned copy. Victoria, Julien, can we see a listing of your directories with brscan4 PKGBUILD? I bet we'll see rpms there too.

Harey commented on 2020-03-27 12:22

So why don't you just overwrite the file agree.html? BTW, yay is not an official tool. I tested with makepkg which is the arch way and this worked for me.
