April 25th, 2009, 01:56 AM
I have install the printer driver according to the instructions on brothers
web page.
sudo apt-get install csh
make sure have to poweroff the printer at this point)
mkdir /var/spool/lpd/MFC420CN
ln -s /etc/init.d/cupsys /etc/init.d/cups
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture mfc420cnlpr-1.0.2-1.i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture cupswrapperMFC420CN-1.0.2-3.i386.deb

I have tried adding the printer using localhost:631 and browseing and using
the .ppd file, it seems to accept everything however fails to print. I also
tried using the System printer add printer, it again seemed to work but fails to print. attaching log from debugger. not sure but i saw one message
on the printer that the black ink was low, not sure this is the problem ...
