    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    As you can see there are already people that have said here that they are not using the LPR. And general rule of thumb it will be mostly people with problems that are going to add remarks to this thread.

    That's great to anyone of you who have managed to get it running with the LPR. Though this is strange as it isn't suppose to be required and is in fact performing better without it on my system.

    I can only gather that as future (less buggy) releases of Ubuntu become available not using the LPR will be more applicable to my HowTo.

    Jose Catre-Vandis:

    The threads you provided while they are still currently valid are all for anything prior to Gutsy's new printing system, this most likely being the reason why my HowTo was approved. Also the new printing system has resolved a couple of major head aches I had in Feisty that uses the LPR.

    Via Gutsy's new printing system without the LPR I am having a very pleasant printing experience.

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    For those that do have printing with the MFC-210C working, do you mind posting the following files:

    /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperMFC210C

    /usr/share/cups/model/brmfc210c_cups.ppd

    /usr/local/Brother/lpd/filterMFC210C

    /usr/bin/brprintconfij2

    In the reply, please let us know if any of the files are in different locations to what I have listed as the directory location, and also if you installed the LPR driver or not.

    Also, a screen print of all the "mfc" programs listed under synaptic or similar would be helpful.

    Finally, please add in any files (with their locations) that you think will help.

    TIA,

    Ewan

    Angry Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Ok I'm extremely new to linux myself, and I can't get the printer to install. I have the Brother MFC420CN, and I am using the newest version of Kubuntu. I did everything that was described in the original post on this topic, and it will tell me that there is the printer, but it just won't print. Now with Kubuntu when you go to system, there is no admin, printer. the only thing I get there is for HP printers. I'm just confused on what to do, because nothing is working for me. If I didn't describe this well enough please let me know, and I will try to explaine it better. Thank you for the help.

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    I am currently reinstalling my printer in an effort to have it printing correctly, at the moment all of my prints are blurred and the quality shocking....as I am currently re installing using your how to I'd like to highlight the following:

    OS: Ubuntu 7.10 gutsy.

    upon installing the relevant cups (MFC 210 in this case) I receive the following error:
    Code:
    turner@turner-desktop:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all cupswrapperMFC210C-1.0.2-3.i386.deb
    [sudo] password for turner:
    Selecting previously deselected package cupswrappermfc210c.
    (Reading database ... 91832 files and directories currently installed.)
    Unpacking cupswrappermfc210c (from cupswrapperMFC210C-1.0.2-3.i386.deb) ...
    Setting up cupswrappermfc210c (1.0.2-3) ...
    ERROR : Brother LPD filter is not installed.
    rm -f /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperMFC210C
    chmod: cannot access `/usr/local/Brother/inf/brMFC210Crc': No such file or directory

     * Restarting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd                         [ OK ]
    seems in my case the LPR is required....unsure why.

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    I had this issue - it's a result of the installation software attempting to delete files or folders which do not exist. In your case, /usr/local/Brother/inf/brMFC210Crc and /usr/local/Brother/inf. I don't know if it actually stops the installation or not, but to eliminate the error:

    Open a terminal window, then type "sudo nautilus" and then enter your password (this starts nautilus as administrator, to allow you to create folders in the / partition).

    Use the new nautilus program which appeared to go to the "/usr/Brother" directory.

    Create a folder called "inf" in the "/usr/Brother" directory.

    Open the "/usr/Brother/inf" directory.

    Create a folder titled ""brMFC210Crc" in /usr/local/Brother/inf directory.

    Exit out of nautilus.

    In the terminal window, type "sudo dpkg -i --force-all cupswrapperMFC210C-1.0.2-3.i386.deb" and it should work.

    NOTE: It think it WILL come up with "ERROR : Brother LPD filter is not installed" but I think the other errors should not occur.

    Good luck!

    Talking Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Okay, nevermind that last reply I put in here about it not installing. I found out what the problem was. I was making a error when I typed in the command for the driver file. I kept putting in the wrong letter, and it wouldn't work for me. I have it installed now, and the printer, and the scanner are working perfectly. That was excellent steps that you gave us to follow.

    Brother DCP-330C installation didn't work

    sudo aa-complain cupsd


    Please - any succestion.

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Anyone receiving these LPR and chmod errors as described in the last few posts should install the LPR. A successful installation without the LPR should look something like this(as if it had the LPR installed):

    Code:
    matthew@matthew-laptop:~/Desktop$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all cupswrapperMFC210C-1.0.2-3.i386.deb
    [sudo] password for matthew:
    (Reading database ... 119742 files and directories currently installed.)

    Unpacking replacement cupswrappermfc210c ...

    rm -f /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperMFC210C
     * Restarting Common Unix Printing System: cupsd                         [ OK ] 
    
    matthew@matthew-laptop:~/Desktop$
    I will adjust my HowTo to incorporate the LPR if necessary.

    I don't know quite why this is working for some but not others, I can only gather it's due to the new printing system in Ubuntu being not quite so complete.

    Re: HOWTO: Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    ONCE AGAIN: FOR THOSE WHO HAVE THE MFC-210C INSTALLATION WORKING WITHOUT LPR, PLEASE SUBMIT

    /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperMFC210C

    /usr/share/cups/model/brmfc210c_cups.ppd

    /usr/local/Brother/lpd/filterMFC210C

    /usr/bin/brprintconfij2

    In the reply, please let us know if any of the files are in different locations to what I have listed as the directory location, and also if you installed the LPR driver or not.

    Also, a screen print of all the "mfc" programs listed under synaptic or similar would be helpful.
