Fedora 25 and Brother MFC-1910W

The main problem for Fedora 25 and Brother MFC-1910W is a permission problem, as normal user you can’t connect to scanner via xsane so a udev rule is the answer 🙂

 

Download and install the drivers  from brother site :

linux-brprinter-installer-2.1.1-1.gz

After the installation vi /etc/udev/rules.d/40-brother-libsane-type1.rules

#
