  sane_start: Invalid argument on Brother DCP-8155DN scanner

Status in “sane-backends” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  The scanner works with an older Debian laptop, but not the newer
  Ubuntu 14.04 64-bit laptop.

  Output of scanimage -L:
  device `brother4:bus2;dev1' is a Brother DCP-8155DN USB scanner

  Output of scanimage -T:
  scanimage: rounded value of br-x from 215.9 to 215.88
  scanimage: rounded value of br-y from 355.6 to 355.567
  scanimage: sane_start: Invalid argument

  gscan2pdf doesn't work either, gives "invalid argument".

  The scanner is connected in the USB 2.0 port.

  I added the following line to /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules :
  ATTRS{idVendor}=="04f9", ATTRS{idProduct}=="0293", ENV{libsane_matched}="yes"
