Hi mark,

device `brother4:bus1;dev1' is a Brother MFC-J5910DW USB scanner
don@ldwatson ~ $ sudo scanimage -L
[sudo] password for don:

  # sane-find-scanner will now attempt to detect your scanner. If the
  # result is different from what you expected, first make sure your

  # No SCSI scanners found. If you expected something different, make sure that
  # you have loaded a kernel SCSI driver for your SCSI adapter.

EDIT don@ldwatson ~ $ scanimage -L

No scanners were identified. If you were expecting something different,
check that the scanner is plugged in, turned on and detected by the
sane-find-scanner tool (if appropriate). Please read the documentation
which came with this software (README, FAQ, manpages).

I ran the above and this is what I get.
