Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

I think I need to do this from the Brother site: Step 5. Setting for your network scanner: ***Use brsaneconfig (for brscan models), brsaneconfig2 (for brscan2 models), brsaneconfig3 (for brscan3 models) or brsaneconfig4 (for brscan4 models) accordingly. 5-1. Add network scanner entry Command : brsan...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

Pjotr , I am happy with being able to print, but at some point would like to be able to diagnose this scanner issue. I will follow up when I get time to make sure I didn't do anything wrong and use some of the other info provided here. I don't mind doing the work but don't really know what I'm doin...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

Did you apply the scanner part of my Brother how-to as well? Yes, but aren't those for Mint 19. I'm using Mint KDE 17.2. I tried 10. This one did not work, I checked to see if the files had been moved but they had not. 11. I did this one but don't know if it worked? 12. That Settings File does not ...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

Yeah I did all that Jerry, but may have made a mistake as I've never worked with the Firewall. And I did not do it before the install of all the drivers.
Those directions seem to be very old IMO, could be wrong, but...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

I have no idea now how all those 880 files ended up in my downloads at all. I thought they were from the 480 Installer, and maybe they were, but now that I used Pjotr's directions I only see the 480 Install Files. Here is the output of grep work-4@work-4-HP-G71-Notebook-PC:~ > dpkg -l | grep Brother...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

# dpkg -l | grep Brother I just made a mistake is all in my Copy Paste, but it still worked so I didn't notice. I used the "Installer" and it's all working now, so don't really know the purpose of all this. If you want to clarify what is going on look at Pjotr's site for his instructions which work...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

I did make that mistake once it appears, but the first time and third time I did it correctly, as you can see by the output in my first post. I think that was an attempt to install one of the Unpacked .deb files, because, as I said once, those are what the Unpacked files for the 480 are named. I wil...

Thanks very much for doing Brother's work for them.

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

More the reason to just buy an HP! I think there is something weird with this printer and linux. I've seen others install this printer but no one has documented it very well. I guess Brother don't care if we can install this printer? Seems weird that so many other printers are supported but not this...

Arrrggg, just reinstalled with all the files in Downloads and was much more successful without all those errors, but it still don't work? Sorry, forgot to copy the output.

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

Here is the two .deb files that were unpacked and installed. The weird thing is, now, the first one won't install if I click on it? The second one will install every time I click on it. But, it shows as being installed, so it don't make any sense to me. mfcj880dwcupswrapper-1.0.0-0.i386.deb mfcj880d...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

I was in 17.2 KDE, and will try it again, but don't quite understand what you are saying. I did see something to the effect of "ac" in SPM, so maybe will install that also. One other thing I was wondering, I installed the package from a folder I created in Downloads, and did not install directly fro...

Re: Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

Yes, that is exactly what I did, and assume that is why I have those packages installed listed. I see the printer trying to print, but nothing happens. I also see that that first installer is for an MFC-J880DW I believe. If you unpack that first installer you would see what I'm saying. Then I went a...

Brother MFC-J480DW Won't Install?

Really struggling with this one guys, don't know why Linux has to be so hard to install printers too. I went to the Brother site and started with the "Driver Install Tool" and when that didn't work I installed all kinds of stuff in Synaptic Package Manager related to Brother, conservatively of cours...

Re: /root swap and /home partitions?

I wonder why you use USB as first? Is it because you prefer that, and that has become the most popular way to boot install medium and tools? Also, maybe not the appropriate part of the forum, but how will I Update the BIOS without Windows. It will be a little difficult on this old pc right. New er D...
