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'.

@MickaelT can you please edit the file in /usr/lib64/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperdcp515w and change the Value for "DEBUG=0" to "DEBUG=1" and retry to print it should create a cupsfilter_debug_log inside /tmp, maybe I get some information with it to figure out what's causing it because theoretical it should work

@Girtablulu
Sorry, but when I try to print, I don't have a file cupsfilter_debug_log inside /tmp

EDIT :

On the other hand, after having modified the line

if [ $DEBUG != 1 ]; then

in the file indicated, I have a new file in / tmp called "005b95ecd8a28".

It contains the following Brother information:

I tried again but still no success, I'm afraid. I'm still getting a "filter error" in print queue using Brother DCP-7065DN over network.

I tried switching on DEBUG but it didn't create any log file in /tmp.

Is there a reason, you prefer packaging v2.1.0 instead of Generic Printer Driver v3.1.0? I don't know the difference. But since both are supported by Brother, I guess another option (if everything fails) would be trying out that one.

I would like to request drivers for the Brother DCP-L2550DW, printer and scanner. .Deb and .RPM packages available on website

.Deb package for Scan-key-tool 64bit did NOT work on ubuntu 18.04, at least for me it didn't. Other DEB pkgs work fine.

Never tried the RPM packages.

Fairly popular printer. Currently is the "Amazon Choice" for "brother all in one printer"

hi, I need the drivers for Brother MFC-J491DW. I see it mentioned in the list above but it has no download link beside it. do I await the link beside it or do I install this printer's drivers some other way? thank you in advance for your help! solus is great!

Hi, is possible to add the Brother MFC-845CW printer+scanner? Many thanks!

aga removed a subscriber: aga.Aug 15 2020, 7:20 PM

Howdy, folks. I'm new to Solus and experienced with Linux, and am loving Solus so far. I have gotten the Brother MFC-665CW working on Solus over the network by copying config files I had on an opensuse machine - felt pretty clever after reading through all the scripts and understanding where the files had to go. However, while this did work on one Solus machine, I then tried it on another to no avail, though everything else I can find seems the same. I would be thrilled to get some help figuring this out, and I would also be thrilled if the drivers available at Brother's site - https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=mfc665cw_us_as - could be ported to Solus.

Thank you all for the fine work you've done in setting up this operating system - it's pretty slick.

Best,
Henry Wilson

Okay, I actually figured it out for myself. I needed to install the "cups-32bit" package because my printer is like 15yr old. Aside from that, my config copying strategy was sound. I will attach a tarball of the config files with a list of where they belong. I would love to share the files with you but some are copyright Brother 2006. The summary is to copy the PPD from the working system, copy the filter file, chmod +x the filter file, install "cups-32bit" and "psutils", and copy the "Brother" director that the working filter file refers to.

Best,
Henry Wilson

I can only second that as I need the same driver and am very happy with Solus for quite some years. :)

If possible I would like two printers to be added to the Solus repos, HL-2270DW & HL-3170CDW.

I already made packages for the printers listed above, feel free to use my package.yml if its of good quality...

@mowglie, @ole108, @bhibb, @boggle247;
I quickly put together some eopkg packages for the printers you where requesting.
While I'm fairly sure that they will work based on my experience and similar drivers repos, I cannot guarantee that since I don't have the hardware to test on...
Let me know if they work for you...

@bhibb, @boggle247;
Looking I looked at the available drivers for your printers and they both use the brscan4 driver and it can be found in the in the Solus repositories.
Have you tried installing the brscan4 package?

If you want to build the drivers yourself, all the package.yml files can be found at my GitHub Gist

Dacian here, can i request a ppd file for the Brother DCP-8070D?

I have already requested drivers for DCP-J125 but it was marked as duplicate of this post. Is it possible to create such drivers package for my printer?

I see that brscan3 is already packaged so, thanks for that.

As always; I cannot guarantee that they work since I don't have the hardware to test on...
Let me know if you are having any issues...

Thank you @QORTEC ! I will test DCP-j125 later today and give you feedback.

Driver for printer DCP-J125 is working perfectly. Unfortunately, brscan3 doesn't work as expected. Scanner is not recognisable by system. Any thoughts?

@DooshPastesh, to my knowledge brscan3 should automatically recognize a compatible USB scanner and work without any configuration needed.

After looking at at Brothers FAQs for common issues and solutions:

  • The brscan3 package is well made and has all needed dependencies and properly configured (also your printer is listed in the udev.rules file).
  • Which leaves a possible privilege issue; Brother provides a second package to "connect via USB without administrator privileges" (said package is basically a udev.rules file).

To test if it's a permissions/privilege you can try running as root and seeing if your scanner works.
Otherwise I can't think of any other possible issues/solutions.

DooshPastesh added a comment.EditedOct 17 2020, 3:55 PM

Unfortunately, running as root gives nothing. But...
After installing brscan4 it just showed up and works as it should!
That's strange, but this workaround is ok for me.

Hello,

tested the driver for the MFC-J430W. Install is okay, but did not work with error "Filter failed".
Also the package description is not correct, it says "Printer driver for Brother MFC-9125CN".

It would be fine, if you can fix the filter error.

Hi there,
I own an old Brother HL-2240D printer (laser, monochrome, able to print in duplex, usb connection only).
The support webpage for downloading the driver is here.
Could you please include this driver to Solus ?

I am little confused... till now the Solus's system printer settings automatically used the driver for printer HL-2250DN, which sometimes worked with just delays but sometimes not at all, like now ... with no obvious cause (to me at lease).

thanks in advance

Hello! Installed the driver on 7057R, everything works, prints without problems. Thanks!!!

Good day,

There is a very common printer on the market here in Australia called the Brother MFC-7362N printer.

I was hoping I could get some support to help install/configure this one..

Hi again
Just found .ppd files for this printer which I used to use in my previous Solus intallation ... but cannot recall where did I found those files !!
I loaded the first one Brother-HL-2240D-hl1250.ppd and my printer works fine !!

I am just uploading here in case it helps anyone on adding HL-2240D support to Solus

i would like to request the driver for BROTHER HL-L2350DW
here is the Link.
Previously there were drivers for this printer in the solus repositories as I installed my device without any problem, at the moment I cannot find my printer in the drivers list.

Hi,
I need driver for Brother mfc-5860CN please.
Nothing is working actually with this Brother in Fortitude 4.2

Thanks a lot.

Can brother dcp t300 use the t310 driver?
if not, may i request driver for dcp t300?

Driver for HL-1110 is available but the driver search picks the wrong driver :

Installing the driver with

sudo eopkg install brother-hl1110

and the plug the printer afterwards worked for me.

Loving Solus! Best distro in town!

the download link for the DCP7065DN eopkg pinned at the top of this post is not working. Just goes to an empty google drive. Can you please post the actual eopkg?
Thanks

Please add support for Brother DCP-T510W thanks a lot.

Requesting support for MFC-9970CDW.

Things I've unsuccessfully tried to get it to work thus far:

  • downloaded and installed the brlaser eopkg package from this Issue's description and tried with that, but printer didn't print and there was no error message in the logs
  • downloaded brmfcfaxdrv-2.0.1-1.i386.rpm, brscan4-0.4.10-1.x86_64.rpm, mfc9970cdwcupswrapper-1.1.1-5.i386.rpm, mfc9970cdwlpr-1.1.1-5.i386.rpm, brother-udev-rule-type1-1.0.2-0.noarch.rpm, brscan-skey-0.3.1-2.x86_64.rpm and unpacked all of them into / with their paths unchanged, then made the necessary symlinks to accomodate Solus's filesystem layout
  • restarted the cups-browsed service, removed and re-added the printer and tried printing a test page, but /var/log/cups/error_log had these error messages: [cups-driverd] Bad driver information file \"/usr/share/ppd/cupsfilters/cupswrappermfc9970cdw\" and [cups-driverd] Bad driver information file \"/usr/share/ppd/cupsfilters/brcupsconfpt1\"!
  • downloaded mfc9970cdwcupswrapper-src-1.1.1-5.tar.gz, then built the brcupsconfig binary and replaced /usr/share/ppd/cupsfilters/brcupsconfpt1with it, then put the cupswrappermfc9970cdw shell script in place of /usr/share/ppd/cupsfilters/cupswrappermfc9970cdw in the hopes that it was a 32bit vs. 64bit problem with the former and out of spite with the latter
  • restarted the cupsd-browsed service, deleted and re-added the printer and tried to print another test page, but got the same two error messages
  • read ArchLinux's AUR's brother-mfc-9970cdw's PKGBUILD script in the hopes of finding another clue in there, alas, there was none that I would be able to recognize as such ... for what it's worth, on a test install of Manjaro with that package installed, the MFC-9970CDW works just fine

It does print using the generic "PCL Laser" driver, but the page size, even though properly set to A4, is too tall to fit on the paper and resolution is limited to 600dpi (instead of 2400dpi). Interestingly, toner levels are being displayed in the settings.

Hey, i would like to request the driver for my DS-640 Mobil Scanner, as i cant get another one for a reasonable price i would have loved if this could work under solus, using a w10vm just for scanning is kinda annoying.

Downloads for the RPM and DEB are here ds-640

Hello, I would like to request the printer driver for my Brother DCP 7055W please.

In debian my printer is working out of the box thanks to this package included in the distro : printer-driver-brlaser
Here is the github link for this package : https://github.com/pdewacht/brlaser
There is also the official Brother drivers but i don't use it : https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us_ot&lang=en&prod=dcp7055w_us_eu_as

Thanks in advance

Hello! I'd like to request the printer driver for the Brother printer/scanner: MFC-9140CDN (https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadlist.aspx?c=eu_ot&lang=en&prod=mfc9140cdn_eu_as_cn&os=128#SelectLanguageType-625_0_1)

Thank you!

Regarding the printer and apologizing for my poor English I wanted to correct my previous message. In fact, although the printer sometimes disappears, other times it works perfectly without drivers (drvless.ppd) (like network printer in my case) .
CUPSDriverlessPrinting
So, as far as I can understans, although sometimes it disappears, maybe you don't need a driver, but I just need to configure CUPS better.
Thanks.

Can you please integrate the driver for the printer MFC-J895DW into Solus? The Linux driver can be found at https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=us_ot&lang=en&prod=mfcj895dw_us_eu

The fact that task T10284 has been merged with this one raises a question for me. The other task was the request for a driver for laser printer-printer MFC-9970CDW for which, as far as I can see, there is no driver at Solus. I don't know if I now have to go through the same procedure as sixtyfive (here above) - with the same or a similar result.
