Brother DCP 7030 scanner not work

Hi! I have just installed my printer Brother dcp 7030,installation was quite simple via terminal. I just followed instructions from screen.
Printing works 100%.But scanner not work at all.
Could it be firewall block? Or something else?
When i look my printer and scanner via Yast everything seems to be normal.
So how can i solve this problem with your help? :\

ps here is install instructions from Brother website:
Step1. Download thetool.(linux-brprinter-installer-..-.gz)
The tool will be downloaded into thedefault “Download” directory.
(The directory location variesdepending on your Linux distribution.)
e.g. /home/(LoginName)/Download
Step2. Open a terminal window and go tothe directory you downloaded the file to in the last step.
Step3. Enter this command to extractthe downloaded file:
Command: gunziplinux-brprinter-installer-..-.gz
Step4. Get superuser authorization withthe “su” command or “sudo su” command.
Step5. Run the tool:
Command: bashlinux-brprinter-installer-..- Brother machine name
Step6. The driver installation willstart. Follow the installation screen directions.

When you see the message “Willyou specify the DeviceURI ?”,
For USB Users: Choose N(No)
For Network Users: Choose Y(Yes) andDeviceURI.
The install process may take some time.Please wait until it is complete.

Scanner Driver and Scan-Key-Tool installed?

I’ve never used the YaST >> Hardware >> Scanner utility to configure any scanner I’ve installed. Instead I manually install (after any necessary driver package has been installed):

  1. Edit /etc/sane.d/dll.conf, making sure that ‘brother3’ is present and uncommented as an entry. there.

  2. Add an appropriate udev rule eg /etc/udev/rules.d/50-brother.rules

# Brother DCP-7055
ATTR{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTR{idProduct}=="01ea", MODE:="0664", GROUP:="lp", ENV{libsane_matched}:="yes"
  • Check that the product ID is correct for your scanner device.

Then see if you scanner is recognised by



scanimage -L

Try scanning using your favourite scanning application. FWIW, I’m using simple-scan, but each to their own. :slight_smile:

Yes i have checked, both driver and scan-key-tool are installed…

Did you try adding the udev rule?

Yes but here is no file: 50-brother.rules (path /etc/udev/rules./) only these files:55-libsane.rules,56-sane-backends-autoconfig.rules,70-kpartx.rules,70-persistent-net.rules,99-iwlwifi-led.rules. :X

This will tell it all.

This is the side for Linux Driver Installation

No there won’t be. You have to create it manually. (I’ve done the same for a number of Brother models.)

So. how to?

Use your favourite editor as root eg

sudo nano /etc/udev/rules.d/50-brother.rules

For KDE, you could do

kdesu kwrite /etc/udev/rules.d/50-brother.rules

Add the entry

# Brother DCP-7055
ATTR{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTR{idProduct}=="01ea", MODE:="0664", GROUP:="lp", ENV{libsane_matched}:="yes"

Save when done.

Thank you very much,now scanner and printer works 100% lol!

I’m glad that it’s now working! :slight_smile:
