Brother MFC295CN on Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon

Postby Tachyon217 on Sun Mar 03, 2013 4:22 pm

Hello.

I'm trying to install a Brother MFC295CN onto Linux Mint 14 Cinnamon. I followed the instructions on the Brother website, but to no avail. I can see the status of my printer in my web browser. I can see a list of jobs that have been sent to it. But nothing prints, although the print queue will list print jobs as complete. Any suggestions about how I can correct this?

Thanks.

I guess if you tell us if you are using 23bit or 64bit;
if you copy and paste these commands

sudo dpkg -l | grep Brother


........Brother actually provide an install script;

...... I wonder if the best thing would be for you to delete what is already installed;

and then download the Brother script; and run it and .......it should work.....................

Mambo detailed what he did in a very clear layout: it should be easy to follow; and it worked

if you want to plod along with what you already have ..........

Ubuntu provide this debugging wiki

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingPrintingProblems

and as Mint comes from Ubuntu, it should all apply

This was helpful. I went back and re-did the preliminary steps that Brother prescribes. I'm printing now.
Thanks.
