    Re: HOWTO: Ubuntu All Brother Printer & Scanner Driver Installation for Newbies!

    Brother DCP-115C printer part in Karmic:

    1) Turn off your printer

    2) Open Synaptic

    3) Search for the package brother-lpr-drivers-extra and install it and all its dependencies (the dependencies should be installed automatically)

    4) Turn on the printer

    5) The print wizard comes up

    6) It doesn't find your printer automatically

    7) Look for the manual printer list in the wizard and open the brother printer section

    8) Choose the MFC-210C printer (yes, even for the DCP-115C)

    9) Done.

    Brother DCP-115C scanner part in Karmic:
    1) For the scanner functionality download the brscan2 deb package from the brother homepage. Take care that it is the right packages: 32 bit or 64 - that depends on your Ubuntu version. Brscan2 is the right package for the DCP-115C, but be careful: There is another brscan package offered for other printers.

    2) Install it.

    3) Now you need permissions. For Karmic create the file 55-libsane.rules in the folder /etc/udev/rules.d/
    sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/55-libsane.rules
    An insert this stuff into the file:
    # USB devices (usbfs replacement)
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb", ENV{DEVTYPE}=="usb_device", MODE="0666"
    SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", MODE="0666"
    Don't forget to save your changes.

    4) Then restart the computer (or at least restart udev
    restart udev

    Report back if that worked. Otherwise you will have to add some additional rules from this thread (I tried some before, but this rule finalley got my scanner to work)

    Firefox! Probably not the king of some strange benchmark but still the king of the hill. Even with a bookmarks-sidebar
