LXer: How to install a Brother printer on Linux


Published at LXer:

Brother is well known for its affordable compact laser printer lineup. You can get a high-quality WiFi/duplex-capable laser printer for less than 200USD, and the price keeps going down. On top of that, they provide reasonably good Linux support, so you can download and install their printer driver on your Linux computer.

I'm not an expert by any means here. I have a brother HL-L2360 printer that I am trying to install on my linux 14.4 os and tried the methods shown here, but my extracted file couldn't be found as I used the terminal. I need some help to install. I may be doing some small thing wrong.

The Brother drivers are all 32 bit. Have a look at this:

for some suggestions on getting it installed.

It may be worthwhile just getting the ppd file for the printer from Brother and then see if CUPS (http://http://localhost:631/) can detect & install it automatically.
