Some advice appreciated please.

I have a Brother DCP-385C printer/scanner, which has been a great piece 
of gear for years.
The problem has been drivers, solved up to now with Brother assistance 
and a bit of messing around.
I have recently installed ubuntu 15.04 and while the Brother printer 
driver software works fine, there's no way I can get the scanner working.
I'm sick of having to install drivers and modify files to get the 
Brother stuff working every time a new version of linux is installed!

Could someone please recommend a printer/scanner which is linux compatible?

Thank you Margaret and Milan, both suggesting HP and giving me ideas to 
follow up. I'll do just that and advise the outcome after purchase.
V-V also includes HPLIP.
