Brothers mfc j430 printer

Is it mint 15 compatible, it's not on my driver list for mint15 but I thought I saw it somewhere being compatible but can't remember were. If it is is it easy.

Brother supplies drivers for linux. I had a look, and if your printer is a MCF-J430W, then here is a link for the driver.


There are instructions on how to install it on their site.

I'm not sure what you mean by
Is it mint 15 compatible
. Install cups, then install the driver using Brothers instructions. It should work.
