Would some one beable to help me to get my Brother MFC-665CW printer / scanner to work
I am running Linux mint 14 Cinnamon 64bit /duel boot windows7
Printer/scanner works in windows.
Linux sees the printer and instales the printer but printer will not print.
Simple scan will not detect the scanner.
Xsane reports no devices available.
I have downloaded and installed new drivers from the Brother site and reinstalled the printer a number of times.
I have installed the driver packaging from https://wiki.ubuntu.com/BrotherDriverPackaging Which had the same result as when Mint automaticly installed the printer
(The printer is installed but will not print or scan).
I have yet to try the procedure as outlined in the last link provided by Viking777 (viewtopic.php?f=51&t=80363#p466713). posted by chris215 back in 2011. (will do this next)
(as a work around I have installed a HP Laser Jet printer works just great Mint installed it automaticly, I am using the Brother in windows but would be great to eventually have it working in Mint)
