Assistance with a printer install

Post by tlcmd » Wed May 15, 2019 5:29 pm

Any assistance would be appreciated. I am having a bear of a time trying to install a Brother MFC 490cw printer on Linux Mint 19. There is a CUPS server error. Otherwise the install went well but the printer (which works with my Windows 10 OS on the same CPU) doesn't want to work with Linux Mint 19 Anyone know of a way around this error; the install files are deb ones. Yes, I have tried a couple of times, but without any luck.

Thanks,
tlcmd

Did you try the instructions found here:

The advice from that site is usually spot-on.
