how to install printer in fedorea 3?


I just bought a borther mfc 210C printer. quality is quite okay, and it saves me lots of time to go back to school to print my assignment. However, I cound't get it to work in my fedora 3. so every time I need to print, I have to send the files to my email and shut off fedora 3 and go to xp and retrieve the files from my email and print them under XP. I want it to work in fedora 3, how?

Maybe you need to configure it using the printer configuration tool in Fedora Core under the System Settings menu.

But they don't have the brand "Brother" nor the model for this printer

I've just realised that brother printers are not well supported in Linux. try doing a google search, maybe there are others who have had similar problems to you and found solutions.
