New Brother MFP printer/fax/scanner


Mostly debian wheezy here.

New Brother MFC-J6929DW printer/fax/scanner.

Downloaded and ran brother "linux-brprinter-etc" installer, which 
downloaded four .deb's:


And then installed them.

Printer works ok, but at 5% of the advertised speed.

xsane can't find it, and despite being installed, adding /usr/lib/sane to 
the ld.so.conf, and verifying that a bunch of brother.so's are in the 
ldconfig output, xsane still is drawing a blank, and locate doesn't want 
to show me much.

I feel like I can't see the tree for all the forest here and I haven't 
been subbed to the sane list in 8 or 9 years.  So if anyone can toss me 
a bone/clue, I'd sure appreciate it.

Thanks all;

Cheers, Gene Heskett
