    Unable to instal printer drivers via software center.

    Hello, I have a brother dcp-7040 and I went to brother's site to get the drivers because they were not included in the list of drivers in system settings. http://welcome.solutions.brother.com....html#DCP-7040 I found the appropriate driver, however when I try to install it using the software center I receive the message "This package is of bad quality." After pressing ignore and install I kept getting the error "unable to complete installation." After trying a few times I don't get that message anyomore, however, It still isn't installing. This is happening for both the lpr driver and the cupswrapper driver. I am running Ububntu 13.10 amd64 Edit: also brother does not provide a ppd file for that specific printer. Edit: here areLintian check results for /the details for the first error: home/han_solo/Downloads/cupswrapperDCP7040-2.0.2-1.i386.deb: E: cupswrapperDCP7040: bad-package-name E: cupswrapperDCP7040: package-not-lowercase E: cupswrapperDCP7040: maintainer-address-missing Brother Industries,Ltd

    Did you try the install method on this page?

    The only thing is that su doesn't work as expected any more, so instead of using:

    Code:
    sudo su
    just use:

    Code:
    sudo
