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

    Ok now I need help with the SCANNER DRIVER INSTALL. When I copy and past sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules IT tells me the following:

    jfank2006@Justin-laptop:~/Desktop$ sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules
    sudo: gedit: command not found

    I'm now running Kubuntu, and I don't know if I have to type something different in to get that part to work. Can someone help me out with this so I can get the scanner drivers installed. Thank you.

    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
    Here we go, as you know I'm not using, nor ever have used, the LPR Driver. All files were in the locations you have shown. Hope this helps!

    Here's the same answer to the private message you first sent (sorry I didn't see this post):

    Yes sorry, my fault. Kubuntu(KDE) uses its own text editors (Kate, Kedit, and Kwrite). Ubuntu(Gnome) uses Gedit etc...

    I think kwrite was the most popular when I tried Linux Suse 10. Try anyone of the following commands:

    Code:
    sudo kwrite /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules
    Code:
    sudo kedit /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules
    Code:
    sudo kate /etc/udev/rules.d/45-libsane.rules
    Please let me know how each command works and which editor you preferred. Also I'm interested in knowing what you think of Kubuntu over Ubuntu?



    Edit:
    I've done some research and kate is suppose to be the best...

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

    I got everything to work perfectly with the scanner after you helped me out. the onyl problem I have is the glass part of the scanner needs some serious cleaning Anyhow I used the KWRITE and it brought up what I needed to to add the part for the printer in at the bottom of the page. KATE also works, it just brings up a smaller side screen thing like how Adobe Acrobat Reader has the side deal on the left. They both work, but I just used the KWRITE since it was the first, and then i tested the other two. The KEDIT didn't do anything. But now my scanner is working, and Thank you for helping me with it.

    I had everything working perfectly on Ubuntu, but when I switched to Kubuntu it had a different type of script than what normal Ubuntu has. Everything works perfectly though. Now only if I can get Halo to work on Linux. lol

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

    Back to the printer issue - thanks that got my printer going again - but no joy on the scanner side.

    recorded an IO error every time.

    Hello! Thanks for the guide. I'm looking forward to using it. However, I have a bit of a problem as referenced in this thread: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.p...ight=hl5140lpr
    I tried installing a laser printer. Something went terribly wrong. I decided to get rid of it and I'm getting this error:

    I now want to install a Brother MFC-465CN all-in-one but I can't get anywhere until I solve this problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

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

    Not a Linux wizard however a friend Richard T is a "Arch Linux Wizard" and assisted with the following, hope it may assist others, my printer now works fine.

    Please note this was for 7.10 distro and on AMD 64 CPU.


    HOW TO INSTALL THE MFC440CN Brother Printer for Ethernet use.
    ============================

    1. apt-get install alien (to be able to convert rpm to deb
    2. used the arch-linux instructions with modifications:
    from this link download the .rpm files below

    http://eithansmith.wordpress.com/200...ther-mfc440cn/


    mfc440cncupswrapper-1.0.0-9.i386.rpm
    mfc440cnlpr-1.0.0-9.i386.rpm

    3. Run these commands as root (sudo -s and put in your user password):

    alien -d mfc440cnlpr-1.0.0-9.i386.rpm
    alien -d mfc440cncupswrapper-1.0.0-9.i386.rpm

    to generate these files:

    mfc440cncupswrapper_1.0.0-10_i386.deb
    mfc440cnlpr_1.0.0-10_i386.deb

    Install these files by simply clicking on them in a file manager.

    4. as root type this in;
    root# cd /usr/local/Brother/Printer/mfc440cn/cupswrapper
    root# ./cupswrappermfc440cn

    5. Now go to the browser admin for cups:

    http://localhost:631/ (e.g in firefox).

    And make sure the printer has the correct driver and it should work.


    Good Luck

    Sorry I'm a little lost with that output. Firstly why is the LPR driver being removed to install tcsh?
