JUST AN FYI UPDATE AS OF FEDORA 28

Be sure to download/install

libnsl-2.27-8.fc28.x86_64.rpm

https://fedora.pkgs.org/28/fedora-x86_64/libnsl-2.27-8.fc28.x86_64.rpm.html

Otherwise all your command line tools will see your brother scanner, but simple-scan will not. (assuming you installed the RPMs provided by Brother for your particular product)

Really was going crazy trying to figure out the hangup on my system and it ended up being just this.

Hope this saves someone out there some trouble.
