I'm a total new to Linux. Loaded a copy of Gnome version Ubuntu and my printer is no longer functioning. Tried doing a search for drivers and found reference to them on the Brother printer site but I have absolutely no clue how to actually do the install
The brother page tells me to do the following. I figured out how to open a terminal and paste in the command but it said command not found. And then my head exploded. Anywhere I can go learn this stuff?
Download the tool.(linux-brprinter-installer-*.*.*-*.gz)
The tool will be downloaded into the default "Download" directory.
(The directory location varies depending on your Linux distribution.)
Step2. Open a terminal window and go to the directory you downloaded the file to in the last step.
Step3. Enter this command to extract the downloaded file:
Step4. Get superuser authorization with the "su" command or "sudo su" command.
Step5. Run the tool:
bash linux-brprinter-installer-*.*.*-* Brother machine name
Step6. The driver installation will start. Follow the installation screen directions.
When you see the message "Will you specify the DeviceURI ?",
For USB Users: Choose N(No) For Network Users: Choose Y(Yes) and DeviceURI.
The install process may take some time. Please wait until it is complete.
