Install Brother DCP-115c Printer in Lubuntu 12.04

1. Install brother-lpr-drivers-extra and dependencies.

2. Go to Printers/Add printer. Choose Brother MFC-210C-CUPS.
3. Go to http://localhost:631/printers in the web browser, and change in default options size from Letter to A4.
4. For the scanner: Install sane-utils
5. Then install brscan2 and scan-key-tool pakages from http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/download_scn.html
sudo dpkg -i –force-all drivername
NOTE: Search for the right scan driver. For dcp-115c is brscan2. If you install brscan it would be difficult tu uninstall it.
TO UNINSTALL brscan: Uninstall scan-key-tool. Then create the folders /usr/local/Brother and /usr/local/Brother/sane. then you can remove brscan with synaptic.
6. FOR 64 bits!: The scan of the DCP-115c only will work after write these lines in terminal:
sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so.1.0.0 /usr/lib
sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so.1.0.1 /usr/lib
sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so /usr/lib
sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrscandec2.so.1 /usr/lib

sudo cp /usr/lib64/libbrcolm2.so.1 /usr/lib
sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1.0.7 /usr/lib/sane
sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so.1 /usr/lib/sane
sudo cp /usr/lib64/sane/libsane-brother2.so /usr/lib/sane
a. Open “/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules” file.

    The lines to be added—————————
