Hi, it could be the “driverless” bit that is causing the problem. I got the family printer installed on my system yesterday and at first the driver information on the test page print was wrong, even though I had installed the deb file from the manufacturers website. It said driverless.
I had another look at the printer set up utility, menu-preferences-printers-(click on “Add”), and found that there were 3 printers listed of all the same model, and I had selected the wrong one first time round!
It might be worth checking to see if the same thing has happened on your system. Make a note of the driver name, if you can get one from the Brother website, and click on each printer option till you find the one that looks right.
Was it a .deb file? If so, right-click on it and select Open With, and select QApt Package Installer. You’ll need to enter your password. This worked fine for me, but my printer is a Canon, perhaps there is an issue with Brother ones?
Thank you. I was not able to successfully employ the brother “installer” but was able to install Brother driver file, with success. The driver that was picked up by the system is for a model close to the one I am using but that will suffice. Thanks all
Actually, I opened the driver file with QApt Package Installer and then used the installation script in the article referenced above. Otherwise, Lubuntu is very useable and this was, thus far, the only hiccup. Thanks again
