I setup a Brother ADS-2700W for network scanning. It works fine from Windows and Ubuntu, but Manjaro can only list it if I sudo the command:
sudo scanimage -L
How can I enable this scanner to be found by regular users without sudo?
Thanks you very much in advance!
You could add yourself to the scanner group
sudo gpasswd -a scanner $USER
Thank you very much for your reply! The syntax should be
sudo gpasswd -a $USER scanner
scanimage -L still does not list my brother scanner, only
sudo scanimage -L does.
Sorry - you are right - that was a typo.
I have used simple scan over network to scan using a wifi connected - very cheap hp consumer mfc device.
I have never tested with a brother device - before committing to further experiments you should check the arch wiki - just search for scanner - see what comes up.
Installing the sane-airscan package solved the issue miraculously.
