Brother HL-2140 will not print on Slack64 13.0...


Hey all, I installed Slackware64 13 earlier today, and everythings working great, except for my printer, a Brother HL-2140. No matter what driver I try, it will not print, and Brother doesn't have any x86_64 drivers out there. Does anyone know what I can do to get my printer working? Thanks

Try using some of the CUPS drivers for the previous versions of the printer like the 1240. I have a 2170W and am happily using the 1270 drivers.

Hope this Helps.

Hi fedoralinuxjunkie,

I also have an HL-2140 which runs very well on the 32bit Slackware 13.0 but I know next to nothing about the structure of a 64bit system. Thread is here.

Thanks for the quick replies.

C-Sniper, I tried your advice and used all the other drivers, and could not get it to work still. I was using the HL-2060 driver on my other Linux OS's.

Andrew: I looked at your thread and followed all advice there, but still to no avail.
