Have you checked "Install Drivers", you can type this from the menu... It may listed under additional.
Also try searching synaptic for brother? I'm not at my LL box so I cannot confirm whats listed:(
- may want to try searching "scanner" for a generic driver???

It does look like Brother has Linux drivers available from their site...
