Unhappy Brother DCP-J4110DW printer-Drivers


I am running Linux Fedora 20. I have tried several times to download drivers; the last message I received said "There was an error during the cups operation: 'client-error-document-format-not-supported'. I'm totally confused now and do not know what to do next. I need help please. I think I should start from scratch.

So, just to confirm that you downloaded the driver packages, and installed them using rpm or your package manager?

dcpj4110dwlpr-3.0.1-1.i386.rpm
dcpj4110dwcupswrapper-3.0.1-1.i386.rpm

Now, assuming the drivers did install okay, I assume you then configured the printer, and the error you reported is from trying to print? BTW, does a test print complete okay?

BTW, here's a useful printer troubleshooting guide for Fedora:
