Brother Printer Driver Hl 2340dw Install Update
I tried a Linux CUPS driver from Brother website - the instructions mismatch severely but I sort of guessed my way through the mismatching bits. At the end of it all there are no errors as such, and I can search for network printers, find it and install it, but when I print, the job disappears from the queue without printing or telling me anything went wrong.
To be clear, it's not so much that I'm having problems which I need help to resolve - the issue is that I just don't know how to do this.
My first hope is that someone may be able to advise how to do this - and I could then reply with any problems. If that's not possible, it'll come down to debugging it but I just don't know where to start.
Found a better native, not Google solution - eventually. This is a pain, but perhaps it will help some poor soul in the future. Unfortunately I can't easily go back and do it again on a virgin system to verify it, so there could be mistakes below - sorry. Better than nothing, though, I hope. If anyone wants to test this for applicability to the DW that would be great. It's a clumsy solution, a bit slow to respond maybe 20 seconds , the print quality isn't quite as good as printing directly some slightly odd fringing effects , it uses up my finite data no idea how much and adds the unnecessary but probably not too problematic restriction that the Internet needs to be alive.
The answer listed above by Mark Smith worked for me edit: I didn't need to create the two directories listed as they were already present on my system. Once I installed the two packages I downloaded from the Brother site, I went to add a printer using the regular Printers app on Ubuntu I followed Mark Smith's steps. I also seemed to need " LPR printer driver deb package ". I used the Generic driver that came with the little printer setup app that comes with Ubuntu.
I also rebooted the printer. Thank you for your interest in this question.

Mark Smith 1 6 You need to get the files from there, but here's what I really had to do: Overlook the badly-made-package warning.
Add a CUPS printer as normal. These are the settings I ended up with, which work for me: The above got me as far as sending jobs to the printer, but no actual printing. Daniel's comment and info helped me get it working on 64bit.
This worked for me as well If you're using the USB option, this will work too just specify "lpd" instead of "usb". I avoid wireless when I can. I found that their bash script for installation works well. I also used this instructional video to get the printer connected to my network: I am setting it up as a network printer. I've found a solution - not a great one, but it works: Get the printer set up with Google Cloud Print.
Which answer by Mark Smith are you referring to? There are two, and they might change position. I think your comment should be a reply to the successful answer, not an answer in its own right. I used "hl-l" as the l was not listed in the setup app.
