Im trying to install the lpr and the cupswrappers for the Brother MFC 210C and even though Im following instructions it gives me an error saying
Setting up mfc210clpr (1.0.2-1) ...
mkdir: cannot create directory `/var/spool/lpd/MFC210C': No such file or directory
chown: cannot access `/var/spool/lpd/MFC210C': No such file or directory

and for the cups:

dpkg: error processing cupswrappermfc210c (--install):
subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

It cant be a permissions issue because I was using root terminal. Any ideas :(.

I swear to god I am an idiot sometimes, I read through the instructions but IGNORED the prerequisite procedures the first time around. Thank you VERY much ramjet for pointing me to that link again.

EDIT: and in CONTINUING to be an idiot I didnt read your name there. Thank you roger!
