Problem installing a brother 8085 printer

Postby mchojrin on Thu May 24, 2012 7:26 am


I'm having a hard time setting up a brother 8085 printer (a network printer). My computer is connected to a lan, to which the printer is also connected. I believe the printer is available through smb.

The only "weird" thing I notice is that when I try to access printer properties I get a message: "Option 'printer-resolution' has value '(unknown IPP tag)' and cannot be edited.", and I just noticed it can't be enabled.

Another strange thing is, when I try to print something, I can see it on the printer's job queue, but it never gets printed :(

I'm using LMDE with xfce, I don't know what other info could be relevant, please let me know about it. Thanks!
