Found another problem, similar to my last question.

Tried to run this script from Brother's web site to install their print driver: (It's here: [https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadend.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=hll2300d_us_eu_as&os=128&dlid=dlf006893_000&flang=4&type3=625][1]

(Now I renamed the actual file name with brp-install instead of typing that huge long file name.)

kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ ls -lah br*
-rwxrwxr-x 1 kcredden kcredden 140K Apr  4 16:55 brp-install
kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ 

I tried:

kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ sudo ./brp-install
[sudo] password for kcredden: 
-bash: ./brp-install: No such file or directory
kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ 

kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ sudo bash brp-install
bash: brp-install: No such file or directory
kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ 

kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ sudo bash brp-install
bash: brp-install: No such file or directory
kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ 

renamed the file with the .sh and tried again.

kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ sudo bash brp-install.sh
bash: brp-install.sh: No such file or directory
kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ sudo ./brp-install.sh
-bash: ./brp-install.sh: No such file or directory
kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ sudo /brp-install.sh
-bash: /brp-install.sh: No such file or directory
kcredden@zeus:/home/work/inbox$ 

What gives? I use to be able to run scripts with just bash, or ./ now I'm getting this.

The script actual is here:

    NAME="Ubuntu"

You need to download the gz file and not the aspx which is just the webpage that contains the download.

wget 'https://download.brother.com/welcome/dlf006893/linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.2-2.gz'

unzip the file and make it executable:

gunzip *.gz
chmod +x linux-brprinter-installer*

run the file:

sudo ./linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.2-2

The only other answer would be that you are running on ARM or something that is not amd64 or i386 which is required.
