How to use this overlay
with local overlays
Local overlays should be managed via
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:
[brother-overlay] location = /usr/local/portage/brother-overlay sync-type = git sync-uri = https://github.com/stefan-langenmaier/brother-overlay.git priority=9999
Afterwards, simply run
emerge --sync, and Portage should seamlessly make all our ebuilds available.
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
