I have installed the Brother printer driver from their website using the specified terminal operations. At the end of the install, the script offered to print a test page, and did so successfully. However, no other printing can be done. The printer is connected directly, not network. The printer shows up in my Printers folder; it says it is my default printer, and is online, but clicking Print Test Page there does nothing. Any suggestions, or should I give this (inexpensive monochrome laser) printer to someone running Windows and try again to buy something that might work with Ubuntu?
I would delete the existing Brother icon in your PRINTERS folder; go here http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadend.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=hll2320d_us_as&os=128&dlid=dlf006893_000&flang=4&type3=625 and click to download and SAVE the brother installer tool and it should end up in your Downloads folder. Then copy the commands below and paste into a terminal; line by line
cd Downloads gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-2.1 (1).1-1.gz sudo bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.1 (1).1-1 HL-L2320D
and that should run the installer tool; it will ask you some questions; and it should work
