I'm facing problems with Brother HL 2130 printer on Ubuntu 13.04. It doesn't print anything and all the loaded papers flow away at the same time from the box.

How do I resolve this?

ok, now I got things working. If you add the driver to your system, select the "Brother HL-2140 Foomatic/hl250" instead of the Postcript driver. Ubuntu's page of supported Brother drivers lists the HL1250 as full supported, wherefore I considered this to be a try. It worked at lest for me.

Wondering why this wasn't discovered and/or resolved in the QA process. – Justin Andrusk May 8 '13 at 17:40
This solution worked for me! – nebffa Oct 15 '13 at 3:17
This also worked for my actual Brother HL-2140, which doesn't choose the .../hl1250 driver by default. After the printer was installed, going into the properties and changing to that driver did it on Ubuntu 13.10. Thanks! – LouieGeetoo Jan 18 '14 at 15:00
