Brother MFC-J875DW not working with Linux Mint 17


Hi Folks

I'm George, a WindowsXP refugee and totally new to Linux. Hoping someone will help in making this a less terrifying experience.

Thanks

I found this: http://community.linuxmint.com/hardware/view/3625 It might help.

This site purports to have a Linux driver for the printer, but I've not heard of the site before, so I suggest investigating it carefully. http://masterdrivers.com/brother-mfc...iver-download/

Go straight to the Brother site

http://support.brother.com/g/s/id/li...tml#MFC-J875DW

Instructions for installing the lpr and cupwrapper DEB packages are given there. Once that's done, it's just a matter of configuring using your distro's print config utility, or via a browser

http://localhost:631/admin

and follow the prompts given.
