Wink adding a printer


Hi
I am trying to add a printer and not having a whole lot of luck.
The printer is a brother mfc-j625dw multi function center. I have installed wine but am still confused.
I am a long time windows user looking for something better.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ross

According to the user agent icon on your post, you are using Ubuntu.

This article may help. https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Printers

Otherwise, please post the Linux distro/version you are using and what type of printer (meaning USB or networked) it is, and we can help you.

You will be better off if you can manage a native Linux installation without trying to use Wine.
