Brother Industries, as a printer manufacturer, has taken a laudable effort at agressively supporting the linux community in providing linux driver for their printers 32bit, but 64bit should come in the near future , not only this, they maintain a website dedicated for these drivers and a faq. I had previously chosen Brother for their Linux friendliness, but I have to say this printer’s support in Ubuntu is.. I don’t know much about printers and networking, but I kind of wonder if this has something to do with the fact that right after I did the physical setup of the printer, I went into the web-based admin interface and set the “boot method” to “static” to make its IP static. These instructions allowed me to get printing within a matter of minutes. If you’d like to contribute content, let us know. My network is the same, all the computers kept their same IP’s, but the printers all had to be reinstalled.

Test pages from console work fine. Their documentation though still needs improvement. October 22nd, 2. With socket address, get blank pages.

As a consequence, I wasted 6 hours figuring out how to make the printer run over Slackware. If you need to reset your password, click here. Can’t find an lpd file for this printer on line.

Join Date Oct Beans Did it just the way you described. So I’d re-enable, attempt to print, then get the same error again.

Better is to make available the FAQs in your current site into a pdf in the CD that goes with the printer. Registration is quick, simple and absolutely free.

Enter this into the install dialogue. You can now print from the OpenOffice, text editors and Firefox.
