[ubuntu] Brother DCP-197C Scanner Function

http://ubuntuforums.org – I recently installed Ubuntu 12.04 and have just manged to install the printer function for a Brother DCP-197C from the "tool" on their website. Unfortunately no such tool for the scanner function exists and despite my no doubt clumsy, yet persistent attempts, I have not manged to get the scanner function going. I think I've managed to install the Brscan3 file from the Brother website using Ubuntu Software Centre but still no scanning. What have I done wrong or not done? I also installed the Sane Utility Software direct from Ubuntu in case that would help - no luck so far. (Hardware)
