View Full Version : [ubuntu] Compatibility of Brother MFC Printers?

May 8th, 2009, 08:58 AM
I want to purchase a new multifunction printer and am looking a lot at the brother printers. I like some of the Canon printers such as the MF6590 but don't think it works with Linux.
I am interested in the MFC8860DN specifically but would also consider the MFC8890DW, MFC8670DN, MFC8460DN, MFC8870DW, or MFC8480DN.
These all have features I'm interested in but I have checked both my Mandriva and Ubuntu machines and don't see a driver for either.
Yet I do see drivers such as MFC8420 8440, 8640 8820, and 8840. Would either of these Linux drivers work with the above printers? Unfortunately with mail ordering this printer I don't want to have to pay the return shipping if it doesn't work with Linux :)
