     I am having a problem with my scanner - Brother MFC240C.  It worked 
until I upgraded my pc hardware and also the os to Fedora 24 64bit.  I 
have been trying to figure out what is really wrong and came up to a 
stumbling block.  The version of scanimage I have is 1.0.25.  I have 
contacted the current vendor of scanimage. According to them the current 
version is 5.0 and is windows only. They do not have the source code to 
any version earlier than 3.0.  I have used xsane in the past but I get 
an error every time I try the scanner.  The error is

Failed to start scanner: Invalid argument

     Is this the place to get help trying to figure out what the problem is?

Thank you,
Vince Radice
