Thanks for submitting this to Launchpad in effort to make Ubuntu better! I am going to change his over to a question, since you are basically needing help with setup and use of your scanner.

Changing to question, in the body of this reported bug, the reporter has said that printing is successful, but he would like to be able to scan and asks how.

I don't have a brother printer/scanner, but I have found a pretty good how to for you try. http://wiki.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=590793. Can you please see if you can follow the scanning part of the first poster and report back here whether or not you were successful?

Thanks so much!
