Installing Brother DCP-J41100W Scanner under Fedora 28 Linux

After upgrading from Fedora 28 the scanner was not working anymore. Here some hints to fix this:
1. Download the Driver Install Tool from the Brother Support Webpage
2. Run the install script

(in my case I specified a Device URI and entered the IP adress)
3. Install libnsl by running

dnf install libnsl

4. The scanner should now work. You can check this by running

scanimage -L

. It should be listed
