Try copy symlinks from /usr/lib/sane to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane, just copy.

Yes. This works. Thank you.

Debian Wiki :: Scanner wrote:
  • A non-free backend issue
A recent change to libsane in Debian may impact on the ability of third-party software to initiate scanning with a frontend. Some packages from some of the vendors above are likely to put files in the wrong place due to this change, leading to scanimage -L giving a negative report. The misplaced vendor backend files are often put somewhere like /usr/lib/sane or /usr/lib64/sane/. Copying them to /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane or /usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/sane/ is one way of dealing with the issue.

In my case, copying the libraries and creating symlinks enabled sane to find my scanner.

Code: Select all
cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother3.so.1.0.7  /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/.
cd  /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/sane/
ln -s libsane-brother3.so.1.0.7 libsane-brother3.so.1
ln -s libsane-brother3.so.1 libsane-brother3.so

cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec3.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/.
cd /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/
ln -s libbrscandec3.so.1.0.0 libbrscandec3.so.1
ln -s libbrscandec3.so.1 libbrscandec3.so

Interesting, what Debian are you all running? I use a MFC-L2705DW over wifi on Stretch, and I've had no major issues at all. I use both scanner and printer at least weekly, sometimes daily.

Debian Buster. Scanning worked fine for me on Stretch and all prior versions of Debian. The change affects Buster.
