Re: Brother HL-2140 / also HLL2390DW

Pdc_2,
Thanks to your awesome help and a USB cord, I finally got the HLL2390DW printer working with my Biostar computer.
I've been trying to get this printer connected for a month, and yours have been the instructions that helped to get this resolved.
Thank you very much.

Re: Brother printer Wifi not Printing

Brian, thank you for your efforts, although the printer still is not working.

To clarify, the printer still is not printing when print jobs are sent to it by the Thinkpad.

In your first post you wrote: There is no specific driver listed for the HL-L2390DW printer under the brother setting choices on the Thinkpad.

Re: Brother printer Wifi not Printing

The avahi-browse output shows that the printer is detected by the Thinkpad and there is a wireless connection between the two. What I failed to notice is that you are using Mint 18.3. My advice is not applicable to that OS. Brian, thanks for your feedback. Do you have any suggestions for what I can...

Re: Brother printer Wifi not Printing

Thanks, but that doesn't appear to help me to get the printer connected. I got the printer more
than 5 weeks ago and haven't been able to use it yet. Any help and/or guidance is much appreciated.
