View Full Version : Brother MFC-J435W Printer Driver

October 22nd, 2013, 08:02 PM
In another part of this forum I was directed to http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/download_prn.html#MFC-J435W to find the print drivers for my Ubantu 12.04. Following the instructions there, I opened the .deb files with the software installer. For both these drivers, I got the error that this was a POOR QUALITY application and when I told to 'ignore and install' it appeared to do the job, but nothing appears in the history of the application installer. Further nothing seems to have been installed either.

I have tried directly downloading and extracting them, but no joy when it comes to finding the ppd files for setting up the printer.

Instead follow the instructions using the terminal as outlined on the Brother site. If you follow their instructions you should not have any problem. Unfortunately, using the Ubuntu software installer is not how the drivers should be installed.

What about executing the command:

sudo dpkg -i your_printer_dirver_file_name.deb
