Brother 2360DW Printer in Mint 19

Post by dave61430 » Thu Sep 06, 2018 3:16 pm

This printer worked flawlessly in 18.3. For that system Installed using driver etc. from Brother Web Site.
In mint 19, printer is recognized and installs fine. Printing is fine except for one glitch. On two sided printing, it always tumbles the page (i.e. flips page over in portrait) regardless of printer settings. Tried to install using the old Brother install, but get an error message about missing file.
1. Anybody else using this printer and seeing same problem
2. Is there a driver file I could copy from 18.3
Printer works fine from windows 7 laptop. Wireless connection on both systems.
Wanted to try on USB, but printer not recognized and doesn't show up in suggested listings, is recognized and installs automatically as usb printer in 18.3!

You can try the kernel version installed in 18.3 to 19.

Code: Select all

 uname -r
gives the running kernel version.
You can try the latest kernel version of the LTS 4.4 series.
If I have helped you solve a problem, please add [SOLVED] to your first post title, it helps other users looking for help, and keeps the forum clean.
I am using Mint 19 Cinnamon 64 bit with AMD A8/7410 processor . Memory 8GB

so the
HL-L2360DW
is airprint-compatible; and I wonder if Mint 19 did an auto-config for you; ?? ?? ??

Right-click on the icon for it in the PRINTERS folder; look in MAKE & MODEL and tell us what it says there:

to install the Brother driver, I would go here http://support.brother.com/g/b/download ... &type3=625 and click to download and SAVE what will be linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.0-1.gz

open a terminal; copy each command and paste into the terminal

Code: Select all

cd Downloads

Code: Select all

gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.0-1.gz

Code: Select all

sudo bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.0-1 HL-L2360DW
watch the terminal; it will ask you questions; that should allow you to install the Brother drivers; if you so wish
