Installing MFC-640CW brother printer in fedora 6


Does anyone here has installed MFC-640CW brother printer in Fedora 6? I have followed instructions from the brother support site but still did not work. Perhaps, someone here at the forum got the correct solution.

Please... thanks...

Need support for MFC-640-CW

I'm with you brother, I have a Brother MFC-640CW too. I'm using the Debian software for my OS. I'm a newbie and I have no clue on how to get this printer to work.

I can connect to it (wirelessly) by typeing ftp://[my IP address] but I can't print to it.

Let me know if you find something. I will keep looking and post here when I find it.

Okay, I found it at ...

For the 640CW, use the bscan2 stuff
