View Full Version : [ubuntu] [Ubuntu 11.10] Brother MFC 465CN showing as "Generic text-only printer"

February 20th, 2012, 05:08 PM
I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 11.10 from 10.10. I installed
brother-lpr-drivers-extra brother-cups-wrapper-extra as suggested here (http://uint32t.blogspot.com/2008/06/linux-printing-brother-mfc-465cn.html), but while it's now detected (it wasn't before) it says it's a generic text-only printer.

I tried rebooting to make sure that it wasn't a glitch, removed and reinstalled printer and tried again, same issue.

The printer is connected via USB.

Here's (http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/index.html) the official linux driver from Brother.
