Brother DCP-110C and others

I have just purchased a new Brother DCP-110C scanner printer combination. I am quite happy with it and Brother does give a good set of setup instructions on their site.
The drivers are fully supported by Brother. If you wish install a Brother printer on your Linux system then go to the Follwing site :-
This will install both the printer and the scanner drivers.
When installing the scanner be careful at step 3. The command given is
# echo 'none /proc/bus/usb usbdevfs auto,devmode=0666 0 0' >>/etc/fstab
This works for a 2.4 kernel but in the 2.6 kernel the usbdevfs was renamed to usbfs. If you
have a 2.6 kernel then use this command
# echo 'none /proc/bus/usb usbfs auto,devmode=0666 0 0' >>/etc/fstab
and all should be well. I am new and cannot give the url as link so I hope you understand the spaces in the url as given

Hi Michael,
I have the same printer but it doesn't work for me. I first installed the LPR driver and then the CUPS wrapper. I can see my printer in CUPS web interface but when I send a test page, it aborts. I started a thread here

any advice?
