Dependices


Hi
I am trying to install a printer on my Suse 10.2 linux box, the driver installed fine but the cupswrapper did'nt. Yast tells me that:

cupswrapperMFC3820CN-1.0.01.i386(krpnview_tempory) cannot be installed due to missing dependices.
There are no installable providers of csh for cupswrapperMFC3820CN-1.0.01.i386(krpnview_tempory).

What do i have to install to fix this

Thaks for your help

Only for someone who knew the Brother model numbering system, but that was logical.

There is no listing for a Brother MFC-38xx anything in the Open Printing database, which indicates that getting this printer to work under Linux may be problematical. It doesn't mean it's necessarily impossible, but it's not a good sign.
