Brother MFC-7860dw Scanner Driver for Windows 8

For a mainstream Brother MFC printer this is just not good enough. A fair amount of information is not relevant in modern Ubuntu such as the pre-install stuff but there’s still good information there. I tried following the directions on the Brother support site for installing the “Windows 8 Built-In Drivers”, but no matter what I did, it would not install a scanner driver which tells me that the scanner driver simply doesn’t exist.
