I am trying to set up a VM for 12.0.4 and have it successfully loaded via VirtualBox. I have allowed access to the usb port with my Brother MFC printer and loaded the appropriate drivers.
When I open CUPS, I can add the printer but no test page is able to be printed. The message i see says "Waiting for Printer to become available"
usblp is loaded according to modprobe. When the brother driver was installed it created the printer on /dev/usb/lp0. However a ls for the dev results in the message 'No such file of directory'
What is the URI for a usb printer on Ubuntu? I checked the usblp doc
and it notes that the device nodes can be found with:
ls -tr /dev/usb_prnt* /dev/usblp*
However, when I try the 'ls' I get the same message that these don't exist.
How do I get cups to print?
Thanks in advance.
