    Brother MFC-240c in 12.04 LTS

    I am using ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64 bits. My printer is Brother MFC-240C. I don't find it in my computer since it is old. How can I solve it?

    I am a little confused about your post. Are you trying to set up the MFC-240C using 12.04?
    If so, have you followed the instructions on the Brother site? Is it to be a usb connection or network?

    That would be the deb file, rpm is for redhat and similar distributions.
    Ubuntu and it's siblings use deb.
    The instructions on the Brother site will walk you through the installation of the scanner driver.
    Download the 64bit version of brscan2-0.2.5-1 for your install.

    On the Brother site the page that displays the preliminary steps is not working as of right now. Hopefully it gets repaired or no one that has not remembered the preliminary steps or saved them somewhere will be installing a Brother printer on Linux.
