[scribus] Scanning and OCR Question

I have noted the recent questions Re: Scanning and would like to ask the 

I need to Scan and OCR a lot of material for the Journal I produce with 
Scribus. I run Kubuntu 10.04 and have a Brother MFC 8860DN 
Scanner/Printer. The unit scans well but I can no longer get it to OCR 
correctly for inclusion in my publication. I use the Sane system but 
when I set it to OCR I just get pages of "Gobblde-Gook" I used to get 
'fair' OCR with Kubuntu 9.10. Anyone have any suggestions on settings 
etc for this? I've tried various resolutions with no luck.

As a matter of interest the printer now will also no longer tumble the 
pages for Double-Sided printing since I upgraded to 10.04! Do you think 
this could all be due to a driver problem? I use the Ubuntu Drivers from 
the Brother site.

Thanks Guys
