I am new to Linux and this forum and would really appreciate some help. I have the following:
Linux Mint 15 Cinnamon 64-Bit *
Brother HL 2240 Laser printer.
* I don't know what my display environment is because I don't know how to find out !!!
I started to use Linux Mint 15 from Microsoft Windows 7 less than two weeks ago and I love it. It's proved to be a brilliant operating system and I much prefer it but getting the printer set up properly is proving to be a headache and I hope that I have missed something simple.
I have followed the help and advice online but without much success.
The System says CUPS is already installed so I downloaded hl2240lpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb driver from the Brother site.
Together they got the laptop and printer talking, it would load and eject the paper but without printing on it. At least they were talking though.
So I decided to try the cupswrapper driver so I downloaded cupswrapperHL2240-2.0.4-2.i386.deb again from Borther. They're not talkiing anymore.
Both drivers are sitting side by side in the downloads box.
I've spent about five hours on this so far so I have tried before asking for help. Can anyone offer me any advice please? Thanks in advance.
