I'm totally confused- the developers on this list are the authors of
the scanimage program you are using. The current version is 1.0.25.
But no matter, because I don't think scanimage is the source of your
problem. The issue here is with the brother driver, which you got from
brother, not from us. I've said this repeatedly, and am going to say
it louder now and in public, so maybe you will hear it. Contact
brother with your issues, as it is unlikely anyone here will be able
to help you.
