I recently purchased a Brother QL-700 label printer for printing address labels in Ubuntu 12.04. The Brother website lists Linux drivers, specifically for Ubuntu 8.04+. I have installed the driver and the printer shows up in System Settings → Printers, but the status there is stuck at "Processing - Waiting for printer to become available" and I'm unable to use the printer.
In case anyone's wondering, I have indeed:
- Powered it on,
- Connected it via USB,
- Installed both the lpr and cupswrapper drivers listed, and
- Followed the directions on Brother's site.
I'm kind of at a loss. Any help would be appreciated.
