Brother MFC-440cn in Slack 11?
I have a Brother MFC-440cn multifunction printer/scanner/fax device that works great on my CentOS system, but I have not been able to get it to work under Slackware. Brother provides driver (rpm files) for the lpd and cups wrapper driver (both must be installed) for Redhat systems, but I have not been able to get it to work with Slack.
I converted the rpm files to tgz, bit there appears to be too many differences between RH and Slack for the drivers to work. I also tried sharing the printer under cups on the CentOS box and trying to print through the CentOS system, but the printer just hangs while sending data, and required a power off to reset it.
Brother tech support has not been any help. If anyone has any idea how to get the printer working, it would be much appreciated.
