attempts at posting other places has landed me nothing. I know that many of
the people here are Linux geeks, so maybe I've come to the right place. If
not, please excuse me.
Here it goes:
HELP! Brother Scanner Won't Stay Connected on Ubuntu Mint Box
Okay, one part of it was a permissions issue, so here's the device list:
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 046d:c016 Logitech, M-UV69a Optical Wheel Mouse
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 05d8:4002 Brother DCP-7065DN Scanner
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 0a12:0001 Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
sudo chmod a+w /dev/bus/usb/002/002 gets the scanner working just fine.
BUT, this works ONLY while the computer is turned on. Reboot it and the
chmod reverts and/or the bus and/or device numbers change.
Does anybody know of a way to KEEP this connection from disappearing?
People have posted elsewhere asking for the OS version, but it's obviously
armchair quarterbacking because either a person has had experience with this
problem or they haven't. I'm looking for a real-world solution, not a
guess. I'm sure I'm leaving out something. Ideas?
