I need some HELP to install my Multifunction Center, specifying that the printer is not connected to my PC,but to a windows based PC in my network, the MFC is shared and available but I follow everything STEP BY STEP but it won't work. I'm really new to Ubuntu and I have no clue on how to install my Brother MFC 7420.

This thread is way thorough and detailed, but it won't work for me. Maybe because the MFC is connected to the network and not to my PC, who knows?!

Besides that, I've tried to install the MFC, using all the stuff in the link above, but First, I don't have the printer working AND every time I install something it appears this text in the Terminal:

"

Everything goes fine with the new program but it keeps on showing this problem with the installation of the MFC.

I guess i need to clean this mess first, but I don't know how to do it,please help me at least to correct that problem with the Terminal.

usr/local/Brother/cupswrapper/cupswrapperMFC7420-2.0.1: 64: cannot create /usr/share/cups/model/MFC7420.ppd: Directory nonexistent

To fix this problem,create an empty directory
gksudo gedit /usr/share/cups/model/MFC7420.ppd save the file and exit from gedit.

Then from the terminal run
sudo apt-get -f install

Not sure about printing to a Windows box,but found this page (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WindowsXPPrinter)

and this page (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BrotherDriverPackaging?highlight=(brother)).
See near the bottom of page for info on network printing.


Good Luck
