How to use this overlay

with local overlays

Local overlays should be managed via /etc/portage/repos.conf/. To enable this overlay make sure you are using a recent Portage version (at least 2.2.14), and create a /etc/portage/repos.conf/brother-overlay.conf file containing precisely:

location = /usr/local/portage/brother-overlay
sync-type = git
sync-uri = https://github.com/stefan-langenmaier/brother-overlay.git

Afterwards, simply run emerge --sync, and Portage should seamlessly make all our ebuilds available.

with layman

Invoke the following:

layman -f -a brother-overlay

Or read the instructions on the Gentoo Wiki.


After performing those steps, the following should work (or any other package from this overlay):

sudo emerge -av media-gfx/brother-scan3-bin
