Missing brlpdwrapper file in Mandriva and Salix
While installing drivers for a Brother printer via the command line terminal the brlpdwrapper file was NOT installed to the usr/lib/cups/filter folder
This anomaly occurred in both Mandriva and Salix
I could not use the printer until I'd copied over the file from another OS and installed to the said folder from the command line
Is this a problem specific to certain OS's as I never had the problem with Slack OR Suse OR Fedora???
I could not see the missing file when I opened the driver with an archiver either - should I have been able to - or is it a file generated by the system???
Is this a glitch with RPM's or just Brother drivers???
Although I have found a solution I would still like to know WHY!!!
