This computer uses Ubuntu 12.10 32bits, and the printer connected with Ethernet.
**Note: I had to install first csh and tcsh.
I have followed these instructions: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bsc/public_s/id/linux/en/faq_prn.html#f00104
This is the automated procedure, at the end of the installation process it asks if I will specify the URI, and following the instructions in the linked page I said Yes.
This is what the terminal asks then:
Will you specify the Device URI? [y/N] ->Y 0: ipp 1: ipps 2: lpd 3: socket 4: beh 5: hp 6: https 7: ipp14 8: smb 9: http 10: hpfax 11 (I): Specify IP address. select the number of destination Device URI. ->6
I typed 6, but I really do not know why or what to choose.
Any other tip on how to install this printer.
The other option I have is to follow the default procedure from Brother.com, but those instructions expand over and over on these pages, way too complicated for an average user, office user like myself.
I understand I should choose CUPS, I want to connect with Ethernet as I have several computer in my house's LAN.
