[SOLVED] MFC-J430W on 64-bit using WiFi

Post by celem »

The brother installation instructions for the MFC-J430 failed to install correctly on my amd-64 machine. However, the following worked for me:

From the printer, using the printer's control panel, setup the MFC-J430W to connect the printer to your WiFi.

On your router, establish a DHCP reservation so that your printer will always be assigned the same IP address.

Verify that "lib32stdc++6" or "ia32-libs" are installed.

in the directory where you placed the downloaded files from Brother, mfcj430wcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386.deb and mfcj430wlpr-3.0.0-1.i386.deb, open a shell and execute:

sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture mfcj430wlpr-3.0.0-1.i386.deb
sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture mfcj430wcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386.deb

Next, load the scanner driver 64-bit brscan4-0.4.1-1.amd64.deb from the Brother site at:
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bs ... d_scn.html

sudo dpkg -i --force-all brscan4-0.4.1-1.amd64.deb

Observe the correct scanner name for your device:

brsaneconfig4 -q (You should see MFC-J430W in the list)

Next, identify your printer's reserved IP address and save it for the next command:

sudo brsaneconfig4 -a name=SCANNER model=MFC-J430W ip= (substitute your printer's IP address)

Verify correct installation:

brsaneconfig4 -q | grep SCANNER

You should see something similar to:

After this MFCJ430W will appear in your printer list, and your printer and scanner are good to go.

For me using Mint12 on a 32bit system and relative 32bit files for the same model ...

Step "Setting up Scanner" I had to use - brscanconfig -q removing the '4'

Step "Finding IP address of printer" - check "Menu" on the printer itself will reveal "Network" click ok then down to "TCP/IP" - if your not familier with this...

Still working on getting the scanner to go at this stage but will post followup. ;D
