Same problem here, with a Samsung ML-1740.

The printer is recognized by the backend ( running /usr/lib/cups/backends-available/usb lists it), but lpinfo -v doesn't.

Suggestions welcome.

Thanks for That worked perfectly on a MEPIS system - I had previously had the DCP110C working under KUBUNTU Feisty but for some reason couldn't get it working under MEPIS. I did uninstall the DCP lpd and CUPS packages using KPACKAGE, before following all these steps very carefully. Greg

cd /usr/share/cups/model
sudo cp br*.ppd custom/

Restart cupsys

/etc/init.d/cupsys restart

Remove any previous Brother printer and create a brand new one.

Best regards,



Just want to tell you that i just installed my brother dcp 110C correctly after your quick little guide.. thanks a lot!


brother, feisty fawn, printer, ubuntu
