printer driver


I have just installed ubuntu 7.10 and am trying to hook up a Brother
DCP-135c I've googled with no success.

Help would be appreciated.

Here's the drivers listed on my system (fairly current):
Quote:
/foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-8020.xml
./foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-8040.xml
./foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-8025D.xml
./foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-7010.xml
./foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-7020.xml
./foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-1200.xml
./foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-8045D.xml
./foomatic/db/source/printer/Brother-DCP-7025.xml
If you can find out if yours has any commonality with one of these, then it **might** work.

Have you checked the Brother website?

Check here also:

The listing above was found by searching in /usr/share---this is where all the printer drivers are kept.
