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

    Network MFC420CN on Gutsy 7.10 64bit:

    After following steps 1-9 listed in the tutorial, printing from my MFC420CN still wasn't working, so I found another step from the Brother website:

    A note from the BSC Linux Support FAQ for Printer:
    * I am using a AMD64 bit version of Debian/Ubuntu Linux. I installed both LPD/LPRng driver and the CUPS Wrapper driver, but I cannot print.

    Install "lib32stdc++6" or "ia32-libs".
    Also:
    * I'm using an AMD64 bit version of Linux. Can I use the Brother Linux printer drivers?

    Yes, but please note the following conditions:

    For DPKG package users:
    Install the driver using the command option "--force-architecture".
    If you cannot print, install lib32stdc++6 or ia32-libs.

    Also, try copying the file which name starts with "brlpdwrapper" in the
    " /usr/lib/cups/filter" to the "/usr/lib64/cups/filter".
    After installing both lib32stdc++6 and ia32-libs for good measure, and setting "Device:" to "LPD/LPR Host or Printer" on the second page of the "Modify Printer" dialog, with device URI set to "lpd://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx", my test page fired right up!
    When the only peace your enemy understands is the "Peace of the dead," you have no choice but to make peace in those terms.

    Thankyou for a comprehensive easy guide to install the Brother printer-scanner, I tried 64 bit Ubuntu and and couldn't get it to work, so I installed the i386 ubuntu and have now got my Brother DCP-115C working fine, thanks again from a newbee:

    Perhaps someone can give me a step by step for Ubuntu AMD64

    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing

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

    Hello, could you please tell me what model scanner or combo you are using? 32bit or 64bit Ubuntu? What errors showed during the installation? Can you post the output after running the "sudo dpkg -i brscanxxxxxxx.deb" command.

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

    That's ok it will most likely be 32bit. Could you please confirm that the brscan2-0.2.4-0.i386.deb file is on your desktop.

    Also can I confirm you have run steps 6 and 7.
