    Question Re: Edgy Howto: Brother Printer MFC-215c complete

    I need some help...

    My printer is working, the scanner not..

    kmos@bash:~$ lsusb

    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    I've solved the problem.. I think you must add this to your tutorial..

    kmos@bash:~$ lsusb
    Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04f9:018c Brother Industries, Ltd

    Now modify the idProduct to 018c and reboot. Start xsane at Graphics menu at it must work..

    # Brother|MFC 210C
    SYSFS{idVendor}=="04f9", SYSFS{idProduct}=="018c", MODE="664", GROUP="scanner"

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    What you did is correct as 0193 is for the MFC-215c. Your scanner must be a different one as it is product id 018c. What is the model number of your printer? It looks like a DCP-115c which has its own product id.

    I've a Brother DCP-115C Printer and Scanner working.. I've also installed FAX, but It doesn't say anything after I put the number to send the PostScript file.

    Just make sure you have followed the fax setup in the howto carefully and that your context menu shows “Open with” and “Send As Fax” when you right click on a file.ps. If not then this part is not correctly created.
    Bobsongs has also solved this in a slightly different way in his MFC-210c howto :

    I'm using Gnome, so your Open With doesn't work here.. but I used that with your command to send fax. I need to put country code in the phone number? after click Send what appears?

    Ok, I have to work from memory as I am online now and cannot dialout as well. Once the dial box appears and you punch in the number, the printer should be seized from the PC and if the speaker is on loud you will hear dialtone and then the dialling on the fax/printer speaker. If your printer has a lcd panel you will also see an indication there. You can try any number, it does not have to be successfull dialout to test this part.
    Sometimes the first installation can be tricky and it is easy to make a mistake and can be solved by completely removing the first one and reinstalling by going through the whole process carefully.

    Has anyone managed to get the fax working in Xubuntu edgy? It shows up in CUPS but the brpcfax script doesn't open the dialler. If I open the jar file the script refers to the dialler opens but it has nothing to print because it wasn't opened via the script.
