    Installing Brother MFC-5895CW on 64-bit system

    I downloaded the cups printer driver for the MFC-5895CW from the Linux section of the Brother web site, but apparently it's only for a 32-bit OS, as it complains "wrong architecture", but there is no 64-bit version listed on the Brother site. Is there any way of getting around this?

    Hi zerubbabel,

    Here is a link to the Brother driver download page,

    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...tml#MFC-5895CW

    Here is a further link to the installation instructions for the MFC-5895CW driver,

    http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...rn3.html#dpkg1

    A quick look over these instructions seems to indicate there is no _64bit driver available, but instead uses the 32 bit version (by force install -f).
    I suggest following the recommended install procedure and see what results.

    Good luck
    from The Desk

    I use Brother's installer script, It takes care of the 64 bit issues. You can take a look at post #4 in this thread. I uploaded the installer script - Brother's method of downloading it seems a little 'unique':
