In sum, BIG success! Here are the steps and the results. The generic fallback often suggested for Brother printers with Linux is the HL printer driver so try that if the HP doesn’t work properly. Since you appear to have been successful in getting the MFCN to work under bit Ubuntu, I thought you might be able to provide some guidance, particularly if there’s another way to get this done or if there are, in fact, bit drivers somewhere that I have not yet located. So now I just go to cups page to install.

Thomas 21 1 4. As of Karmicthe driver is in the repo’s yeah!! I would like to print to it from Debian Squeeze over the network without installing Brother’s official driver, which I know for sure to be out of date and non-functional without some pre- and post-install hacks, and to not work on bit machines at all.
PPD A test print with borders worked correctly after selecting this file If I do a search in the Ubuntu Software Centre for ‘mfc’ I see a bunch of brother cupswrapper drivers and ppd files. Ron Campbell 1-ron-f wrote on Upgraded to oneiric on 29 days ago dmi.
I’m a bit nervous about this purchase, because I don’t want to get stuck with another piece of junk that will only work under Windows. The installer will tell you that it ran lpadmin -p MFCN -v socket: Sign up using Email and Password.

HiI have the mfccn. As ofoften say in Oinux mint The drivers for USB works flawless, and the network drivers seem fine too.
Unfortunately, I do not know much about that printer. I did some more searching and have been able to get the printer working. Perhaps you can help. Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: This can have crashed the printer so that all subsequent jobs linnux ignored.

Some additional steps are required. Most average and non technical users are not going to put in the research or effort required to make this printer work in Ubuntu.
Provide your individual address lonux of above I had exactly the same problem as described in the “bug description” with the 32 bit version of official Ubuntu release If I do a search in the Ubuntu Software Centre for ‘mfc’ I see a bunch of brother cupswrapper drivers and ppd files.
