I'm new to linux and Ubuntu, but I saw this email listed when trying to add
this brother scanner so I figured I would send it your way! I'm actually
having trouble opening this file as root and can't change it on my own. I'm
trying to install Brother printer/scanner MFC-845CW on my machine with out
much luck! Doing some searching on the internet and finding lot of stuff...
just not the fix yet! :)
