Ubuntu 16.04, Acer i5, 6GB, 256GB-SSD
Hi, I have a headless PC now with a Brother HLL2340DW printer attached via USB. I need to install the Brother drivers but the process needs Internet access. I do not want to have to drive 30-miles each way to the PC+printer and bring them back, install then take them back out.
I found this, Configure Brother HL-1212W wireless printer via Ubuntu and downloaded the files to a USB but it gets part way through and asks for a Proxy because of no Internet. It will not proceed beyond that. Thanks Brother printers!
I tried just using the Ubuntu Setup to install but nothing prints even though it thinks it is setup. It shows up in the "File > Print" Menu lists but nothing prints.
Is there some way to install the Brother drivers with Internet access? There is no cell signal where the PC+printer is.
If not, can anyone suggest a low-ish-cost printer that will install without direct Internet connection? Last damn Brother I will buy.
