Brother HL-L2350DW | Linux | Ubuntu base
I'm using this printer under Ubuntu (Kubuntu) 18.10.
I've tried installing it via Ubuntu itself (USB connection > Let Ubuntu/Printer find the recommended driver, and use that). Sometimes it have printed, but most of the time not. Was able to print a few pages from Thunderbird and Kate (.txt) yesterday, but then not print a .pdf from Okular. And now it's completely dead again.
The printer throws me error messages like:
- Rendering page 3. (In Printer settings/queue)
- Processing page 2. (In Printer settings/queue)
- Sending to printer (In Printer settings/queue)
- Unable to add document to print job. (In Printer settings/queue)
- Out of memory. (On printer LCD)
I've tried both the Local Printer (USB) and Network Printer, where I've tried all drivers pertaining to the printer, as suggested by Ubuntu and those I've found myself:
Recommended Drivers > Brother HL-L2350DW series, driverless, cups-filters 1.21.3
Brother > HLL2350DW for CUPS (en)
Generic Text-Only Printer (en)
I've even tried to install the drivers from Brother's website (.deb package).
§ dpkg -l | grep Brother ii hll2350dwpdrv:i386 4.0.0-1 i386 Brother HL-L2350DW printer driver (lpd/cups) ii printer-driver-brlaser 4-1 amd64 printer driver for (some) Brother laser printers ii printer-driver-ptouch 1.4.2-3 amd64 printer driver Brother P-touch label printers
Further, I have to log in* on the CUPS interface for my printer.
Depending on the connection type you are using (USB or Network), follow one of the steps below.
(for USB Connection)
- Open a web browser and go to "http://localhost:631/printers".
Check if the Device URI of your printer is "usb://Brother/(your printer's model name)"
- If the device URI is different from the example above, please go to "Modify Printer" of your printer to select proper device and driver.
- If your printer is not listed on "http://localhost:631/printers", please go to "http://localhost:631/admin" and click "Add printer" and select proper device and driver.
In here I can't find anywhere to check, and/or correct, the Device URI.
Any ideas or similar experiences? This is gettin really frustrating, to put it mildly.
