Subject description: Unable to install Brother Scanner
 

Hi I'm running Slacko 5.3.
I want to install a Brother MFC-9120CN scanner.

Following rcrsc51's instructions I downloaded brscan3-0.2.11-5.amd64.deb and installed it with debbi:
debbi brscan3-0.2.11-5.amd64.deb

I then tried to execute:

brsaneconfig3 -a name=Brother model=MFC-9120CN ip=10.0.0.7
and got the error:

bash: /usr/bin/brsaneconfig3; cannot execute binary file.

I tried using chmod to make the file executable, but same result.

Any advice please?

I doubt that rcrsn51 would recommend a 64 bit binary for a 32 bit OS Confused . It just doesn't work.

@BlueGum: Are you finally continuing with your two-year-old request here?

Before dealing with the scanner, it would be helpful if you reported on the status of your printer installation.

No, this is using a newer machine with dual pentium E2140 (64bit) architecture.

Anyhow, I downloaded the 32 bit version, repeated the steps and it worked immediately! So many thanks to rcrsn51 and all who commented!


BTW, using rcrsn51's instructions I had already got printing going. So thanks again rcrsn51 - you're very generous to beginners like me.

It's not that the *machine* is 64-bits -the system (OS) is 32-bit. You cannot run 64-bit binaries on a 32-bit system.
