Red face Installing Brother MFC-7420 on Ubuntu 11.4


After installing Ubuntu on my IBM compatible PC (desktop) for the first time, I lost the use of my usb printer/fax/copier (Brother MFC-7420).

What happen after installing the linux drivers? Did you follow the Brother instructions?

More details on what you tried and what was the outcome, plus any error messages if there are any.

Thnx.

Hi FredGSanford,

The instructions at the URL you pointed out to me is For Ubuntu9.04, but I use Ubuntu11.4. would that be a problem?

Thanks
