my printer Brother MFC7460DN has worked fine with xubuntu 16.04. Since the upgrade to 18.04, the printer is not working anymore. I have reinstalled it, following the instructions according to Brother and also the suggestions here ( Ubuntu 18.04 - Brother MFC7460DN printer / Scanner installation ), but without success.

The installation is working perfectly, the printer is recognised and it seems to receive test print jobs, but no printing. It may be a driver issue related to 18.04 . When I select another driver (MFC 7360 or sth), I manage to make a print job, but the print result is somehow garbage.

Has someone MFC7460DN running on 18.04, and how?

KR, Hartmut

  • The printer is working now. Maybe only a reboot was missing. So, false alarm, sorry. – Hartmut Nov 4 '18 at 14:17
