The other day I bought a new multi-function printer/scanner. It is a Brother DCP-J525W with wireless connection.
I got it connected to my wireless and I am able to print and scan from the windows 7 laptop, -even if it took me some time and several installs, removals and installs again.
However on my Linux mint 14 (64 bit,cinnamon) I cannot get it to work. At one point I got cups set up and I could actually print, but as scanning did not work I decided to remove it all and reinstall and now I cannot print or scan
Brother has lots of drivers and stuff on their website (http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/index.html
), but I am afraid I do not know the difference between CUPS and LPR, which one I need or if I need both.
Error message when I try to print:
In cups it says "stopped"
and when I try to scan:
No scanners detected
Could somebody possibly give me a hand?
