I recently install Linux Mint 13 (Mate) on my PC with a dual boot (Windows XP Pro). I just purchased a new network printer, a Brother HL-2270DW, which has Linux drivers. I downloaded the drivers and had package installer install the network CUPS package that was available but I cannot get Linux to recognize the printer.
I did the LPR and CUPS both from some instructions I saw:
sudo apt-get install apparmor-profiles
sudo apt-get install ia32-libs-multiarch
sudo apt-get install apparmor-utils
sudo aa-complain cupsd
sudo mkdir /usr/share/cups/model
sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/cups /etc/init.d/lpd
sudo dpkg -i --force-all hl2270dwlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-all cupswrapperHL2270DW-2.0.4-2.i386.deb
The only line that didn't work was "sudo ln -s /etc/init.d/cups /etc/init.d/lpd"
Since I am new to this, any help would really be appreciated.
It took awhile for the localhost:631 to see the printer then I changed host on Socket to IP address and it printed.
