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

    In attempt after attempt my Ubuntu experience has been better than my Fedora experience. I am running Fedora on my desktop and Ubuntu on my laptop. I have been able to get wireless and mp3 playback operational in half the time it has taken me on my desktop and now, after a week of effort on Fedora, I still cant print. In my first attempt on Ubuntu I was able to get the spiffy CUPS test page to print. I am about to attempt the scanner driver install, but my confidence is high that this to will be a straight forward install.

    I am very impressed with everything Ubuntu so far - keep up the outstanding work!

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

    Thank you for the reply. The error I kept getting was a result of a botched install a few weeks ago. It kept preventing me from installing ANYTHING new. I think I fixed my problem. I kept getting this:

    stephanie@boxofmallards:~$ sudo apt-get install -f
    Reading package lists... Done

    Reading state information... Done

    Errors were encountered while processing:
    hl5140lpr
    E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)
    stephanie@boxofmallards:~$

    I removed the hl5140lpr.postrm file manually, ran sudo apt-get install -f again and all seems well. Sorry, this is monumental for me as I am just getting the hang of this! I finally solved my own problem...

    Now I can use your guide to install my new MFC-465CN. Thank you!

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

    Seems I spoke a touch too soon... After modifying the 45-libsane.rules I rebooted. Everything is going just great, but can't get the scanner to work. When I run xsane is gives me an error stating:

    Failed to open device 'brother2:net1;dev0': Invalid argument

    um.. yeah... Help?

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

    Back again...

    I finally installed the drivers without a problem. I was able to print a test page once. Somehow I manged to screw something up and now nothing prints.

    This is what I have in CUPS:

    Description: MFC440CN
    Location: Office
    Printer Driver: Brother MFC-440CN CUPS v1.1
    Printer State: idle, accepting jobs, published.
    Device URI: ipp://192.168.0.3:9100

    When I click to print a test page it appears like it is going to work (LCD lights up on the printer) but nothing happens. Cups displays "Connected to 192.168.0.3:9100."

    What am I doing wrong? I have no idea if that URI is correct- I was guessing.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    Thanks! Worked a treat with my MFC-640CW.

    One minor comment. In step 7, it did complain that it couldn't create some directories. Doesn't seem to stop it from working fine though.

    Interesting you had to remove the cups seeing the LPR is being forced? I will add it to my How-To if it's mentioned again. Thanks!

    I actually thought it was cause by previous failed attempts installing... still might come in handy for othes though.
