Fedora 19 + CUPS + Brother DCP-J925DW


Hello,

Using Fedora 19 (Gnome)

I am unable to print on my Printer : Brother DCP-J925DW

I have followed these intructions on installing the printer driver : http://welcome.solutions.brother.com...ion_prn1a.html

The drivers needed are installed :

[root@jonashp Jonas]# rpm -qa | grep -e cups -e lpr
bluez-cups-4.101-9.fc19.x86_64
cups-filesystem-1.6.4-2.fc19.noarch
cups-filters-1.0.40-4.fc19.x86_64
python-cups-1.9.63-4.fc19.x86_64
cups-libs-1.6.4-2.fc19.x86_64
cups-pk-helper-0.2.4-2.fc19.x86_64
cups-1.6.4-2.fc19.x86_64
gutenprint-cups-5.2.9-11.fc19.x86_64
dcpj925dwlpr-3.0.1-1.i386
cups-filters-libs-1.0.40-4.fc19.x86_64
dcpj925dwcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386


But when I try to print a pdf document or a test page via cups website (http://localhost:631/printers) nothing happens.

I tried with network :

Description: DCP-J925DW
Location:
Driver: Brother DCP-J925DW CUPS (color, 2-sided printing)
Connection: lpd://192.168.1.110/binary_p1
Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=one-sided


Status according to CUPS : DCP-J925DW (Idle, Accepting Jobs, Not Shared)


I have tried with usb and let Fedora detect and auto-install the printer : printing does not work.


What else can I try ?

Looks like your setup is 64bit. Brother printer drivers are 32bit only.
From the Brother page you linked, under Step 2
Quote:
Pre-required Procedure (7)

Fedora 10, 11, 12 64 bit version

Requirement
glibc.i686 is required to be installed.
(For Fedora 12, nss-softokn-freebl.i686 is also required as a dependency)

Solution

For those who find this when searching for the same problem, the solution is a simple...

yum install glibc.i686

This fixed it for me in Fedora 19 64 bit. It doesn't help that Brother's installation instructions specifically tell you to ignore dependencies, otherwise it would be slightly more obvious.
