I have a Brother HL-1110 printer connected to my computer, it was working well although it took me long time to install it in first place
suddenly it stopped responding, and the small icon in the upper left corner of the screen that shows print jobs stopped appearing.
I tried to uninstall the package and install it again, although I know nothing about using the Terminal.
no progress, in addition to that now when I try to open the printer from the System Settings -> Printers -> Select Device , I get this message:
System Problem detected Do youo want to report the problem now?
I'm using Toshiba TeCRA with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
I need to reinstall the printer that's it
I tried to follow the official Brother instructions, I got the following:
