    Printer issues HL6050-DN (Brother) Ubuntu 14.04 64

    I installed ubuntu 14.04 and now my printer is not working.

    On prior occasions - the issue was that the UI to add a printer is incomplete and you need to use the command line:
    $ system-config-printer

    Brother has a website with support. It is not good:
    HTML Code:

    Here is the output I get when I try to print a web page:

    I reset my router (just in case).

    Any suggestions about what to do next?

    Re: Printer issues HL6050-DN (Brother) Ubuntu 14.04 64

    Solved!

    The device URI is required.
    for my printer the URL is: 192.168.2.139 *obtained by going to the printer and printing out 'settings'
    making the URI: socket://192.168.2.138:9100

    Also, use:
    $ system-config-printer

    Some stuff is (has been) missing from the menu UI.


    I am at a complete loss as to why configuring my printer is soooo difficult.

    for now: solved.

    Well - it worked for a minute.

    Now I am getting a message: error 508

    Here is the output from the Brother install script:

    It looks like there was a conflict between two installs of the printer. Very strange.

    I deleted one instance of the printer
    $ system-config-printer .. remove printer

    Then the printer worked again.

    so did you select
    dnssd://Brother%20HL-6050D_DN%20series._printer._tcp.local/
    .................which was no. 11 in the options in the Brother install script?

    I ... via trial and error .. learned to select #14 IP addrss (*of printer)

    for me: 192.168.2.138

    When I selected choice #14 and plugged in my printer's IP everything worked.
