Brother printer not work at my Debian 10


I have Brother MFC-J3530DW model printer.
I installed Debian 10 on my laptop.

I get a file from
https://support.brother.com/g/b/down...&flang=English

When I run
linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.1-1
I met following message.

How is your printer attached? Is it USB-connected to the laptop, or IP connected to your network LAN? Assuming the latter, then option 12 or 15 should be ok. (They rely on Avahi doing the discovery work.)

Question lpr: connect: No such file or directory

My printer is connected wireless network.

17 (A): Auto. (dnssd://Brother%20MFC-J3530DW._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e3248000-80ce-11db-8000-3c2af4158483)

select the number of destination Device URI. ->17

I selected 17 Auto and got following messages.

lpadmin -p MFCJ3530DW -v dnssd://Brother%20MFC-J3530DW._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e3248000-80ce-11db-8000-3c2af4158483 -E
Test Print? [y/N] ->y

wait 5s.
lpr -P MFCJ3530DW /usr/share/cups/data/testprint
lpr: connect: No such file or directory
Is lpd daemon running?
jobs queued, but cannot start daemon.

How to solve it?

you shouldn't need to install anything from brother
( I would only use that as last resort )


Here is Debian's page on Printing
https://wiki.debian.org/Printing

that one above should get you to the ones below

@FireratAre you sure about that? I've found no evidence online that the Brother MFC-J3530DW supports IPP Everywhere, (but I'm open to being corrected about that).

https://www.pwg.org/index.html

Instead I would make sure that the requisite Brother drivers are installed first. That includes both the LPR printer driver and CUPS wrapper printer driver (assuming a regular CUPS printing environment). I would install each deb package using your distro's package manager.

You should also make sure that CUPS is active...
Code:
sudo systemctl status cups.service

That only signifies that the printer supports IPP printing protocol (which is common with many network printers), but it doesn't necessarily mean IPP Eveywhere is supported.

From your opening post, I don't think you've configured the appropriate driver for CUPS. You can check that with
Code:
egrep -i "name|model|filter" /etc/cups/ppd/*
Report back with the output.

I would normally have expected the ppd to be explicitly configured with the -P option (eg asssuming PPD is located in /opt/brother/Printers/mfcj3530dw/cupswrapper/brother_mfcj3530dw_printer_en.ppd)....
Code:
lpadmin -p MFCJ3530DW -P /opt/brother/Printers/mfcj3530dw/cupswrapper/brother_mfcj3530dw_printer_en.ppd  -v dnssd://Brother%20MFC-J3530DW._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e3248000-80ce-11db-8000-3c2af4158483 -E  -v dnssd://Brother%20MFC-J3530DW._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e3248000-80ce-11db-8000-3c2af4158483 -E

In any case I recommend configuring via the CUPS inbuilt web interface (using your favourite browser)...

localhost:631/admin

Then select Add Printer and follow the prompts given.

Just in case this is relevant....

I've used the (older) install script from Brother to install printers - they are very linux friendly! My specific ones wanted me to add i386 architecture.

The script should download the printer drivers as part of the install. You can find them on the same download page you got the install from.

As done, you'll need CUPS properly installed.

Ok, that ppd output reads as expected. It confirms the configuration is using the Brother driver (brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj3530dw).

The current printer status can be got using
Code:
lpstat -t
Are you able to try a test print via the CUPS web interface? From a browser:

localhost:631/printers

Select the printer > Maintenance > Print Test Page

If you encounter problems, you'll need to examine the CUPS error log (/var/log/cups/error_log).

You can also put CUPS into debug mode (for more verbose output) using
Code:
sudo cupsctl --debug-logging
The output can be lengthy. If you want to share it, upload it to https://pastebin.com/ and share the link that it provides here.
