Has anyone been able to get both print & scan functions working in Mint 13? I had both working in a previous version of Mint, using the procedure shown in this thread:
but after running software updates, it no longer worked. Even after an upgrade to Mint 13 Mate (hard drive was dying while running the previous version), I couldn't get the same script to work. I was able to get the printer portion to work by installing it as a 'Brother HL-5170DN foomatic/hpijs-pcl5e', but no joy on the scanner. I've attached a log showing the attempt to use the script above to install under -13Mate.
If anyone has a 'just works' process to share, I'd be most grateful. To be clear, I am very much a 'user', & while I can follow directions, I will not be aware of any omitted steps that are obvious to experienced practitioners.
If no one can assist with this printer, I'd be happy to entertain recommendations for an affordable multifunction printer with laser print engine that will 'just work' in Linux. For instance, New Egg is offering a Canon MF8080Cw network printer that looks great, except that Linux support is listed as 'printer only'. I need something that I (and more importantly, my wife) can use without worrying that the next batch of software updates will kill my ability to use the printer.
