I have installed Xubuntu 18.04LTS on a desktop. Everything's fine, apart from the scanner.

I downloaded the driver from the Brother website and installed it according to the instructions on this page.

It works, but only if I run the scanner as superuser. There is a link that is supposed to give instructions which I followed, but it's broken. I found it by searching on Google another link but the last version of Ubuntu mentioned is 10.10.

I looked for anything that might help in the documentation. I found this page which mentions Brother drivers but nothing there was appropriate to me and the troubleshooting guide was a link to a nonexistent page.

sudo scanimage -L gives me:

found USB scanner (vendor=0x04ca [Broadcom Corp], product=0x200b [BCM20702A0]) at libusb:003:004
found USB scanner (vendor=0x04f9 [Brother], product=0x03b7 [ADS-2400N]) at libusb:003:002
ls -al /dev/bus/usb/003/002 gives me:

crw-rw-r--+ 1 root root 189, 257 JanĀ  9 12:48 /dev/bus/usb/003/002

I checked my normal user is a member of the saned and scanner groups following this advice from the Ubuntu documentation. No change.

I put in these symlinks following this post on Ubuntu forums.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/libsudo ln -s /usr/lib64/sane/ /usr/lib/sane
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/sane/ /usr/lib/sane
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/sane/ /usr/lib/sane
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib
sudo ln -s /usr/lib64/ /usr/lib
Not all the files exist. I also created the file /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules

# Brother scanners
ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"
I don't know what to do next.
