Troubleshooting Brother Laser printer (cups related?)

Postby freeligious on Fri Nov 02, 2012 12:17 pm

Linux Mint 13 Maya 64bit, the printer is a Brother HL2280DW installed using these insturctions.

I've already tried reinstalling the cuppswrapper and lpr drivers, and actually reinstalled everything that came up when I typed "cups" into package manager without change.

When I try to print something, first the printer will show "Data file sent successfully". Then, I get an error, and the printer state reads the following:
stopped
"/usr/lib/cups/filter/pdftops failed"


When I ran the debugger, I got this:

I wondered if you had installed the lpr driver first;

as Brother recommend

http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bs ... prn1a.html

Step 4

4-3. Install LPR driver.

sudo dpkg -i --force-all (lpr-drivername)


4-4. Install cupswrapper driver

sudo dpkg -i --force-all (cupswrapper-drivername)


4-5. Check if the LPR driver and cupswrapper driver are installed

sudo dpkg -l | grep Brother
