The file /etc/issue contains the name and version of the distribution. gNewSense 3.1 still says 3.0, but that doesn't matter much. The Debian version on which it's based is not obvious in the distribution itself. The wiki page that lists the differences with Debian [1] does say that gNewSense 3 is based on Debian Squeeze.

Does that answer your question?

Please advise me how I might obtain the version or release number of my installation. In addition, how do I identify which release of Debian my installation of gNewSense encorporates?

I am attempting to install support for scanning from a Brother MFC-7360N all-in-one. The Brother web site provides configuration information I need to add, but it varies by release of Debian (their table does not include gNewSense). That's why I am asking for your help.
