Just installed Ubuntu 12.04LTS. My Brother DCP-130C usb printer is correctly detected but the drivers for a DCP-1200 are installed by default. I have downloaded what I assume are the correct drivers from Brother (deb format) but don't know what to do now. The .deb file is in my downloads folder. I am a newbie to Linux/Ubuntu so climbing a bit of a learning curve. Hope someone can help Roy
Follow these steps to install your .deb file:
Open terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and Go to downloads where you file is located:
Then execute this command to intall it:
sudo dpkg -i *yourprinterfilename.deb*
That's it.. Replace yourprinterfilename.deb with your actual printer's file name.
