    Great work! I have a DCP-7020 and had been trying to follow the instructions on Brother's web site with little luck. Your well-written HOWTO did the trick and I'm up and running with what appears to be fully functional MFC. One step closer to removing Windows altogether. Thanks again!

    Marvelous! Your method worked perfectly for my Brother HL-2070N with just a couple of small changes, all of which were menu options under System | Administration | Printing when I got to that point.

    I then just deleted the old printer, changed the uri to the network address, changed the paper size to letter and viola! I had been struggling with this for days now, ever since upgrading to Gutsy. Thanks a ton!

    Re: HOWTO: Ubuntu Gutsy 7.10 All Brother Printer Scanner Driver Installation for Newb

    My Brother MFC 8420 was detected and installed as a printer automatically by Ubuntu 7.10. I jumped directly to the Scanner section and followed the steps without error other than the I/O errors after step 4 and after step 7. I deleted the printer and started with the printer steps and encountered the following errors installig the lpr driver. The cupswrapper installed fine. Have not been able to make work as a scanner yet even though it worked fine with Kubuntu 7.0.4

    Hi BoarDWorld,

    Thanks for your useful post.

    The only thing is that I found an error in it. In the step 5 of the scanner installation you noted that Product ID for Brother MFC-215C is 018c. I tried this way and it didn't work.

    So I executed the lsub command in the terminal and found that the Product ID for that printer-scanner is 0193 (the Vendor ID is the same you noted).

    I changed it and it works perfectly.

    Hey thanks for that, you're quite right. That was daft of me as it will only apply to DCP-115C printers of course. It's now adjusted, Thanks!

    Hello, I have taken a look at brothers website and it seems that it may not configure itself without a few more adjustments as follows:

    After completing the driver installation open Firefox and enter the following into the address bar:
    Code:
    http://localhost:631
    Click on “Manage Printers” and confirm that the device name(DCP135C) is listed there.

    If the device name is NOT listed there, click on "Add Printer" and install the driver following the on-screen instructions.

    The default port is USB. If you want to use a different port, click on “Modify Printer” and select the required printer port.


    Hope this helps!
