Ubuntu :: Unable To Print On Brother Mcf 440cn Printer?
Apr 17, 2011
I am unable to print on my Brother mcf 440cn printer. Every thing was working ok, today I finished some work in Open Office and could not print the saved file. I get an error unable to print msg. my printer is no longer recognized on the system. I reinstalled the driver no luck. I tested the printer with Windooze and every thing works fine
I am running ubuntu 9.04 and am having trouble printing. My Brother DCP 330c printer is detected however I have to manually chose a printer driver all of which do not work with the printer. I have tried downloading a printer driver from the brother website and tried to install it.
I have been trying to get 5250DN brother printer to print envelopes correctly and Have tried installing the ppd and a host of other things and still within openoffice on karmic nothing works correctly I have also installed the brother package specifically from the repository via synaptic as well
I have a mfc-440cn installed and working in Debian wheezy 7.4 (the last one) but I cant fix to it for printing in grey, I was using the pdf default reader and send some pages to printing indicating not to print them in color just greys colors but doesn't respect that order, it prints full color. When I see the conf page for the printer it stills have the configuration I did indicating to print grey but it ignores it and print as it wants (full color). Note that I installed thr mfc according the instructions from the brother support page with no trouble but is just that it only wants to print full color.
I've recently installed F15 LXDE RC from the livecd and connected my USB Brother All-In-One MFC-5440cn printer. After following the Brother installation page, the Cups & LPR drivers are installed but when I'm in the cups page (http://localhost:631/admin), the printer will not print a test page or print from any application. The LCD panel on the printer does show 'receiving data' but nothing comes out. The last version of Fedora I had running was F13 and the same printer worked fine.
Are there any other printer drivers I need to install besides the Brothers? The printer does show up in the Print Manager but nothing prints. I did have this same type of issue with Mageia Beta 1 and ended up installing a2ps, which wasn't included in the original print drivers, and it is now printing. So I had to install a2ps with F15 but still no print output. Something must have changed with the recent distros causing this. After looking at the output of dmesg I see this:
Code: WARNING! power/level is deprecated; use power/control instead [14.867397] udev-configure-printer: add /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb1/1-3/1-3.2/1-3.2:1.0 [14.867991] udev-configure-printer: parent devpath is /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb1/1-3/1-3.2 [14.869115] udev-configure-printer: Device vendor/product is 04F9:016D [14.880470] udev-configure-printer: MFG:Brother MDL:MFC-5440CN SERN:- serial:BROM5F412304 [14.880520] usbcore: registered new interface driver usblp [15.902920] udev-configure-printer: failed to connect to CUPS server; giving up .....
Any idea why it's failing to connect to Cups or any idea how to find out? Is it possible to have too many USB devices connected? I'm using a 4 port usb hub in use and also using a usb mouse/keyboard connected.
I have just purchased a brand new Brother printer MFC-250C which includes a fax/copier/scanner but mostly its for printing photos however Ubunto 10.4 does not recognize this model! (it works perfectly over on my other partition with windows7 using the setup disk for Brother). I have installed everything related to Brother from Synaptic and searched the Brother web site for any drivers relating to this model and have even tried installing from Synaptic MFC-240C drivers in case they may work (no 250c available in synaptic) selecting PRINT for instance in Fspot my printer receives information for the photo but does not commence printing ..the same applies working in Gimp Gutenprint.
I'm having trouble printing on my Brother MFC-8640D printer. I've tried both Ubuntu 10.04 and 10.10, neither of which work reliably although a page will occasionally print. I can print just fine from my dual-booted Windows 7 installation. Thunderbird seems to always print OK, OpenOffice writer prints sometimes, other programs don't print at all or are inconsistent.
My wife has a canon MP470 printer and running ubuntu 10.10. I am able to print black and white, but unable to print photos. I got it to work using another driver, but not the 'correct' one for this printer. I have searched a bit and don't see anything about ubuntu 10.10, just older versions. Or should I just network her to my printer....?
I'm trying to install Brother DL-5250DN laser network printer. I have read the manual at [URL] and also I have searched the forum but I didn't find a solution yet. The problem is that I don't know what is the printer type that I have to select. None of the description really match for this printer. It is a printer which is directly connected to the network and *not* to a Linux or Windows machine. The only type that matches is AppSocket/HP JetDirect. I tried to cinfigure it with CUPS but it doesn't work. After I type the password nothing happens.
I recently installed 10.04 and unable to print to local or network printer?
When I go to System Admin/Printing to add my printers, screen says I am not connected to localhost and I am unable to use Add printer. When I used version 9.10, I added a network + a local printer by this method but I'm not sure what I have done wrong this time around.
I am running Ubuntu 10.04. I am trying to print on a Lexmark 9300 series printer connected to a Windows XP machine. I am able to print on an HP Laserjet 5P printer connected to a Windows 7 machine just fine.
I have a Windows print server (Win XP SP2) and a 1 opensuse client. I have setup cups as per the following document:
Printer Sharing: Windows Print Server for Suse/openSUSE Linux Clients [Samba and LPD]
I am not using Samba. The setup went fine, but I am not able to print to it. There are other clients (all Windows) that are printing fine to this print server. The following is what I see in the /var/log/cups/error_log:
[Job 3] recoverable: Unable to connect to printer; will retry in 30 seconds...
I am using DHCP in this LAN. Ping is working fine (client's hosts file updated with the print server's ip address.). This looks like a networking issue.
New 3040CN on 64-bit lucid. Test pages from console work fine. Cannot print using network or USB. Can http to printer on net, and system recognizes printer when USB attached. Downloaded and installed Brother's cups & driver files (despite being labeled as 64bit, they were i386) No 3040CN found in driver selection listings! system-config-printer thinks the driver should be for an Epson Stylus Photo 2200!
Tried various generic and foomatic PCL printers. Tried attachment to lpd://10.10.10.20/binary_p1 and socket://10.10.10.20:9100. No results with lpd address, jobs are just lost. With socket address, get blank pages. Can't find an lpd file for this printer online.
I believe I have installed my Brother HL 2040 printer on my Fedora 11 64 bit system. However, every time I click printer the printer goes through its warm up procedure but it does not print anything. There is paper in the tray and I know it was working when I was running Fedora 10. It is shown under the Printers heading under Administration.
I have been attempting to get my Brother printer to read on my Ubuntu Maverick 64bit system with nothing but failure. I have downloaded all of the appropriate packages and I am now at the point where I am getting the following msg
sudo dpkg -i --force-all --force-architecture mfc6490cwlpr-1.1.2-2.i386.deb dpkg: warning: overriding problem because --force enabled: package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64) (Reading database ... 176291 files and directories currently installed.)

I am using debian Lenny and a Brother MFC-665CW printer. I am trying to print a PDF, but nothing happens. I'm not sure if I've ever printed in Lenny (recently upgraded from Etch). It worked fine in Etch. I "added" the printer again in KDE Print and it spat out a test page, but it does absolutely nothing if I send the document to print.
I just installed openSUSE 11.3 (Gnome GUI). All hardware functions pico bello (Agfa SnapScan e42), card reader ACR038, but ... I can't get my Brother HL-2030 to print.
It is not on the list of Brother printers to be chosen from, so I went to the Brother site in order to get the correct driver, where I can download, after having clicked on the Brother 2030 rpm, a file called cupswrapperHL2040-2.0.1-1.i386.rpm.
So, this is the first thing that surprised me : 2040 instead of 2030 ?
I then tried to install it by right-clicking on the item and then choosing Open with package installer but it returns this error :
nothing provides brhl2040lpr needed by cupswrapperHL2040-2.0.1-1.i386
I remember I had the same problem after installing openSUSE 11.1 but I was able to resolve it rather quickly. So, with openSUSE 11.1 I could print what I wanted.
I am having difficulty with my brother hl-2040 printer. Linux recognizes the printer and it's set as the default. The job shows up in the printer queue as completed, but nothing comes out of the printer.
This site has drivers for my new Brother HL-3040CN laser printer ... but it says its the wrong architecture when I try to open the first one with GDebi Package Installer. I'm kind of stuck now ...should I try just plugging the printer into the computer with the network cable and seeing if Ubuntu will automatically take care of drivers? For reference I saw this topic when I googled the issue [URL] This site says 64 bit drivers are available for Ubuntu 9.10, only 32 bit drivers are available for Ubuntu 10.04. I am running 10.04 (64bit) ... should I return the printer?
I had it printing until the last cups upgrade. Brother support thinks it is something to do with the upgrade. We did a reinstall of the printer driver. The printer works on Virtual Box and the scanner works on Ubuntu, but not the printer. What do I need to have the printer work under 11.04?
About a week ago I installed my first Linux (Ubuntu 10.04). Since then I've been trying to get my printer to work by following some of the instructions on the web.Unfortunately,as a newbie, I can't seem to get it right... The printer is - Brother DCP-135C.
I am trying to connect to a network printer Dell 3110cn from Fedora 14 x64. Till a few days ago, everything was fine. However, over the last few days, I am unable to print anything using my old settings and I am unable to print even if I delete the printer and reinstall it.
During setup, Fedora is able to connect to the printer and I am able to install the drivers and everything. But, when I print something (even the test page), I get the error message "Unable to write print data - Broken pipe'.
I have searched online quite a bit about this problem. Most suggestions were to look if the printer status was "Idle - Ready/Accepting Jobs" since the problem in those cases was that the printer status was "Printer not ready". But in my case, the printer is recognized but unable to print.
I upgraded from Karmic to Lucid RC a couple of days ago and have been trying to work through a few problems since. One of these problems is printing with my Brother DCP506CN printer which was working in Karmic. However, I just can't seem to get it going in Lucid. I have followed the Brother linux install procedure, which worked for the the last few Ubuntu releases, but not for this one it seems.
I have read the threads and have downloaded the 4 drivers/files from the brothers site and installed them.. but still can not get my USB cabled printer to work what am I missing I am running Ubuntu 10.04 sounds like brother is not the printer to have in case their is no fix what brands of printers are best for compatibility?
Anybody else using this printer? I have tried the driver direct from Brother, requires cups and the driver.Both installed, both fail. I read on another forum to try a Brother HCL type and it works, but why?
I have a Brother MFC-240C inkjet printer & scanner. On installation of Maverick Meerkat v. 10.10, my scanner function failed. I added the same line into the file as for Lucid Lynx v. 10.04 and the scanner has scanned perfectly. The lines Brother gives are for the following file: Ubuntu 9.10, 10.04
1. Open "/lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules" file. 2. Add the following two lines to the end of the device list. (Before the line "# The following rule will disable ..."):
I'm trying to download this driver with my UBUNTU 11.04 but theres so many steps I'm not sure I'm doing it right. I downloaded SUSE but I dont know how to get it to run. I'm also in the process of downloading Cups But I don't know what to do with that either.
