Unable to force linux print on brother DCP-7070DW


Hi everyone That's my first post on this forum

So I've bought recently a printer (read subject) and I cannot make it work. I've downloaded a driver from here http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...ion_prn1a.html and did everything as it's written (for wireless printing) as Gentoo don't use rpm package i emerged rpm and later installed driver but it didn't work. So I used alien command (from faq on brother solutions) and installed again and again nothing worked properly. In my cups I see:

#########
Description: Brother DCP-7070DW
Location:
Driver: Brother DCP7070DW for CUPS (grayscale, 2-sided printing)
Connection: lpd://BRW0022589DA31C/BINARY_P1
Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided
#########

When I want to print anything (my file or test page) then cups say that it's (job) stopped. In the printer's applet when I check show printer status I get xyz: "cups-missing-filter", where xyz is just a name of the printer. I checked for cups-filters but it's not working on my architecture (amd64) and I'm not sure if this works at all or it's just at testing stage. Any ideas what I can do? Btw. Sorry for my English

This is just a guess, however, I have had similar problems on Slackware and my Brother HL2040.

See FAQ section on Brothers site, look at question 14. If your system is 64 bit, extra steps are required to get the filters in the correct location. It may take some interpretation to set up your Gentoo system. I have no idea how you set up the 32 bit libs on Gentoo.

Yes it's something with it's location, but I don't know what. in both directories (/usr/lib/cups/filter and /usr/lib64/cups/filter) there's a proper filter. But in the cups's errorlog it says that there is no such a file or direcotry.

E [24/Jun/2012:14:38:48 +0200] DCP7070DW:
E [24/Jun/2012:14:42:52 +0200] Brother_wireless:
E [24/Jun/2012:14:42:52 +0200] [Job 24] Unable to start filter "brlpdwrapperDCP7070DW" - No such file or directory.
E [24/Jun/2012:14:42:52 +0200] [Job 24] Stopping job because the scheduler could not execute a filter.

Tried to install driver on Ubuntu and works just fine. I would try to put this file in another location but I've no idea where shall I put this.

This is in the FAQ's #25. Give it a try.

Quote:
I'm using Gentoo Linux and I receive the following error mssage:" Filter "brlpdwrapperXXXXX" for printer "XXXXX" not available: No such file or directory". (where XXXXX is your Brother product name)


When you use printer in a Gentoo environment, make a symbolic link to "/usr/libexec/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper[printer name]" after the driver installation.
Command example (Type the whole command as a single line before hitting enter):
# ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper[printer name] /usr/libexec/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper[printer name]

I ticked it as solved. It's displayed as Solved. Am I wrong?

That is fine, Thank-you.

I often ask new users to 'marked solved', most will when asked, but do not know there is a benefit to others that read the thread later. I did not see that you had marked it solved, sorry for that.
