Dear Friends - Here's the situation and I hope I can explain it for you satisfactorily. This will be a two computer home network. I have a PC for windows connected to my printer. On another PC I just installed & using 10.04 LTS. First of all I am unable to get Ubuntu to find, recognize & install the DCP 395 CN. Linux appears to recognize the MSHOME but does not have my printer listed in the Brother models???? This is a wired system consisting of 2 computers through a dsl broadband router. The DCP 395 printer is connected to the Windows PC by USB, if that makes any difference :confused:. Would like to connect to the MSHOME or establish a Network that will work. Hope that this helps?? Any suggestions or assistance would be appreciated. Thank you for sharing! PW

According to http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/download_prn.html there is a printer driver for the DCP395CN.
Maybe the FAQs at http://www.linuxfoundation.org/collaborate/workgroups/openprinting/database/indexfaq are a good starting point for you?

Marc

Thanks Marc, I think I was able to download & install the printer driver for the DCP395CN. It shows up as the local host printer. PW
