Wireless Laser Printing with Linux Mint 16

Can anyone suggest a simple way to attach my Brother HL-2135W printer to my AcerAspire 5920 running Linux Mint 16 (64).

I have finally had enough of Microsoft products.

Thank You.

Install cups, if it isn't already installed. Go to this link,


Brother recommends the HL2130 driver for your printer. You will find instructions on the web site on how to install cups wrapper driver and LPR drivers.

When I bought my Brother printer, the linux drivers were on the CD shipped with the printer. You might find them there.

Once you have the drivers installed, you have to configure the printer. In a web browser, enter http://localhost:631 Go to the Administration tab, click Add Printer, and follow the instructions.

Thanks so much for that. I'll try it tonight and check the DVD.

Kind Regards
