Brother Drivers
Open, HighPublic

Description

The drivers are available from Brother - as either RPM or DEB.
While RPM Solus trickery can allow an install of sorts - no print no facs.
Result as complaints of no cupswrapper and permissions difficulties with Cups itself. Additionally, Scanner detection does not happen correctly.
All-in-all, a fail.
Specifically, the driver(s) being requested are for Brother MFC-L2703DW, and Brother describes these as MFC-L2700 series.
This printer is mass-market in Australia, sold through the largest office supply chain, so they're not at all rare.
The drivers appear to be generic monochrome MFC Laser printers in the brother range.
Brother website specifies differing procedures pre-install, depending on the relevant Linux install. Solus is 'different'.

@SuperJC710e great at least it's printing, did you try as well as in increasing the dpi to 600 and did you check inside the printer settings if everything is set? Because you are the first who is reporting such an issue and as by far I can see and the package should work as all the others :/

@alexanderzhirov thanks for the checking, still looking into it, can you see your printer via lsusb ?

@Girtablulu Thanks for the response! I'm using the printer via network. I can try connecting to USB later.

(Just noticed you were not asking me for the USB output, anyway, here it is from a different system (JIC):

Bus 002 Device 012: ID 04f9:02af Brother Industries, Ltd MFC-9330CDW

)

However, that said, connecting by network via the same method reveals very different options on Fedora vs Solus. Here's the output

@Girtablulu Thanks for the quick turn-around. So the new driver "prints", but it just spews a bit of Post Script (I assume) and then a bunch of blank pages. I did remove and re-add the printer after I installed the new package. Still doesn't have the same options as with the Fedora driver.

and we have a winner! thank you so much, great work :)

@Girtablulu Thanks! I've installed. it It works, basically like the first one. No errors, still low quality for colour prints, and not showing all the options. I'll have to print anything but text documents from my other system for now, but thanks for the great work on this!

Stab in the dark, because you have probably already covered this, but I think the rpm (and deb) packages run some sort of setup script after install that sets things up...

well yea I did but I run something else wrong https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lwaDFICAdXBIlbZTMKnfjq13E07-etes

let's hope this works

well yea I did but I run something else wrong https://drive.google.com/open?id=1lwaDFICAdXBIlbZTMKnfjq13E07-etes

@Girtablulu Thanks again, you're rocking the packaging! About the same results. Is there some sort of procedure I should follow to make sure I'm installing this correctly?

Mmh will have to look deeper into it if I need to do something else

@Girtablulu The printer is installed as "Generic Text-Only Printer". Scanner is working, printing is not working. Even in the print task does not get the document. Nothing happens.

Mmh will have to look deeper into it if I need to do something else

@Girtablulu I finally had a little time to dig deeper, and I think I've discovered the issue. For some reason the cupswrapper portion is being installed for the mfcj220 model, instead of the mfc9330cdw. I had installed a completely clean system as a VM for a reference point, and I noticed the /opt/brother/Printers/mfcj220 directory after I installed the package you provided. As an experiment I grabbed the mfc9330cdwcupswrapper-1.1.4-0.i386.rpm package and extracted the contents to the /opt/brother/Printers directory and voila! it worked! The print came out just as nice as on my Fedora system, and the options are now the same!

PS: I'd love to have your source folder for the package so I could have try my hand at packaging (just for fun...done lot's of RPM packaging in the past, but would like to try some Solus packaging). I had started setting up the packaging area, and having a reference yaml file would be cool!

@Girtablulu Awesome, it works! I removed my manual additions and uninstalled the package, then installed this last one, and hooray, it works!! Thanks! I have to make sure to manually add the printer and select the correct driver (Brother MFC-9330CDW CUPS), then it works as desired!

Hi Guys, Dont know if I should be doing this here but i need the drivers for a brother hl-1110, Thanks

@jae6565 https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MXhXc0wy5bj4czW7X3iRhfCVv7W_zOQF can you download it and install and test if your printer is working?

Girtablulu. Thank your it works.:-)

Hi, I would like to request drivers for the dcp-l2532dw model. Thanks in advance.

@huneater https://drive.google.com/open?id=1KIgAgP9q_rP9fUUutAqN4nG9rlEy10qq please download it and check it

do not be surprised regarding the name, it L2532DW uses the same driver as L2530DW

@Girtablulu First DS Series package doesn't seem to be working for me. This is on a fresh (as of a couple days ago) install of Solus 4.0. Everything seems to look fine, its just sane isn't finding it as a scanner. Is there any other info / cmd output I could pass on to help diagnose the issue?

hi

can you please do the drivers for brother DCP-j562dw. Also a brief as to how to install them as I am not very tech savvy but I am cut and pate savvy

@Girtablulu is there any command output or any other additional information I could get you to help get these working?

Thanks!

@beimhoff Sadly not much time the last few days, maybe I can have a look on Thursday or at latest on the weekend (gonna throw it on my task list so I don't forget it :) )

beimhoff added a comment.EditedApr 13 2019, 7:54 PM

@Girtablulu still nothing - same as the previous two. Kernel seems to load it fine, but the scanner isn't seen by any sane application at all - sudo'd or otherwise. Anything I can do to help you debug?

the scanner is connected via usb?

@Girtablulu yes, connected via usb - Bus 001 Device 003: ID 04f9:60e2 Brother Industries, Ltd

Hello!
May I please request the addition of drivers for: Brother MFC-J5330DW (Drivers page).

I've tried installing those myself, unfortunately with no luck what so ever.
Thank you in advance!

@Girtablulu, really that's great! Is there a way I can check?

hi, i am trying to install Driver for Brother-DCP-71010L. Theres already a driver existing for DCP-7010 but not for the 7010L. But this existing driver doesnt support my DCP-7010L! More about: https://discuss.getsol.us/d/1437-cant-install-supported-brother-printer/

Hi - any chance you can add the Brother DCP-7065DN ? (full print and scan functionality) It's really the only thing stopping me from using Solus

Thanks

Wow that was quick!

Only problem is that it's not working, which may very well be my fault.
I installed the driver for the MFC-J470DW with sudo eopkg it ./brother-mfcj470dw-3.0.1-1-1-x86_64.eopkg and I also installed brscan4 through the Software Center.
Next in Settings > Devices > Printers I selected my printer and added the newly appeared driver using the Select from Database... option.
Everything seemed to be fine except in Printer Setting I am getting an error:
Printer State: Idle - File "/usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj470dw" not available: No such file or directory.
In the stated folder there are at least two related files brmfcj470dwfilter and cupswrappermfcj470dw and a bunch more but not the one requested.
What do I need to do to fix this, or is this an issue with the driver?

Thanks again!

EDIT: I grabbed the file from a random GitHub repo, placed it where it was missing, changed the PPDC path to make it correct (removed the Brother folder) and chmod-ed it. Seems to have done the trick.

Hello! Could you please add the Brother DCP 585 CW ?

Thank you!

Hello, I've tested the driver for the Brother MFC-J430W on my machine but sadly it isn't working. I've installed the scanning package and it works perfectly, but when it comes to printing it's not printing at all. It's also my office printer and the only reason I'm still not using Solus at work right now. Is there any chance a working driver will be added soon? Thanks for your work!
