hm, not really right now

try to revert back to the versions you used before that update and if that fixes it


you guys using Brother's printer drivers:

WARNING !


quickpkg --include-config=y ghostscript-gpl before upgrading to ghostscript-gpl 8.64 or mask that package

it seems to prevent me from being able to print with my printer(s):

I don't know why, but my scanner automagically works again! 8O

No changes meanwhile.. I reboot my box almost once a day. I usually power off it every evening.

Dear KernelOfTruth,

thank you for your thread. Worked perfectly well for the Brother HL 2140.
If you don't mind I'll make an entry in Gentoo-Wiki for this printer.

Edit: Thx to brother as well!

just in case somebody else is struggling for getting any kind of output with the official brother's printer driver (i did it for two days without success), i found out the foomatic driver just works (at least with a dcp-7030 printer).
all i did was emerging net-print/foomatic-db and select the recommended "Brother DCP-1200 Foomatic/hl1250" driver in cups. it has all the features of the official one (resolutions from 75 to 600 dpi, toner saving, ...) and the print quality/speed is good enough.
i had no problems with brscan2 driver, however i had to manually add
Code:
0x01ea,6,1,"DCP-7030",131,4
to /usr/local/Brother/sane/Brsane2.ini for getting it recognized...

There now is a how-to in Gentoo-Wiki.
If you like visit http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Brother_HL-2140 and correct it or improve it.

Wow, has probably been years since I've posted on this forum... Anyway, I'm looking at buying the brother HL-2140. I use gNewSense though, and so obviously don't want to install proprietary drivers.

I have read around the net that this printer works, though is limited to printing at a lower resolution, with the Free software driver named: "Brother HL-2060 Foomatic/HL1250"

I was wondering if anyone here would be willing to test this, and confirm? I am quite happy to have a printer that is limited to a lower resolution but works with a 100% free system.

Thanks to anyone that is willing to help out!

why not combine best of both:

speed, high resolution and opensource ;)

afaik the BR-script3 drivers / PPD files (if available from brother) are under GPL so there should be no problem per se with a completely free system

there are however some problems with some documents when printing but in that case you can use the foomatic driver :)

From what I've gathered about this driver from brother for the HL-2140 printer, it requires two parts, one of which is proprietary, the LPR part. http://solutions.brother.com/linux/en_us/download_prn.html#HL-2140

That's why I'm just hoping someone would be nice enough to confirm for me that the "Brother HL-2060 Foomatic/HL1250" driver, which is Free software, does indeed work.

I'm fairly sure it does, but so often you find people reporting crap online, and then you test yourself and it doesn't work. If it does work though, I would imagine it should be fairly easy to modify the existing Free software driver to get high res printing working, unless of course if the high res part uses a special protocol that is locked away in the proprietary drivers.

???

the BR-script3 driver is only a PPD which is under the GPL just copy it over to the /usr/share/cups/model directory and install manually ...

anyways ... the foomatic drivers works with HL-2070 - that's the one I tested some time ago (it's slower than the proprietary Brother one)

can't tell for the HL-2140 ...

Oh sorry. I don't seem to be able to find much in the way of details about this BR3-Script thing though? Doesn't seem to be much data on google....


Err woops, stupid me, would help if I was searching for the right thing. BR-Script3, not BR3-Script. Will try again.

Okay, so looking around, it doesn't look like the BR-Script3 stuff is available for the HL2140... So if anyone out there could test with the foomatic driver for the 2060, I would be really grateful.

Just to let you know that I was unable to use the Brother provided printer driver :evil: .
To print, just:

emerge net-print/foomatic-db

then specify in CUPS:

Brother DCP-1200 Foomatic/hl1250

as printer driver.

Bye

I ran brsaneconfig2 and added the scanner over network:
Code:
$ sudo brsaneconfig2 -q | grep scanner
  0 MFC_scanner         "MFC-7820N"         I:192.168.1.2

but xsane, even running as root, still tells me no device found.

Help?

EDIT: took me a while to figure this one out.

If you don't want to use rpm, which gives all kind of complains about dependency, you can use rpm2targz to convert the rpm into a tar ball and extract as usual.

The extra step you have to do is run
Code:
/usr/local/Brother/sane/setupSaneScan2 -i

when you install and
Code:
/usr/local/Brother/sane/setupSaneScan2 -e

when you remove.

Hello,

I'm getting this error when trying to start xsane as user:
kernelOfTruth wrote:

So if you get an error message like the following:

Quote:
Failed to open device `brother2:bus3;dev2`:
Error during device I/O.


try to fix the access rules in the /proc/bus/usb-section by chmodding or simply execute xsane (or your favorite scanning application) with
root rights (remember: this can be a security problem!)


Is it working for you?? I'm looking forward to hear from you :)

The exact message is: Failed to open device `brother2:bus2:dev1': Error during device I/O.
If I try to run xsane as root it works very well.
Does anyone have any idea of what is happening?

fbcyborg, how did you install the driver ?

it's already been some time for me (several months ago) but I believe I installed the x86_64 driver via rpm

rpm -ivh --nodeps


e.g. when the device is on Bus 002 Device 004: ID 04f9:0182 Brother Industries, Ltd

it should be

ls -l /proc/bus/usb/002/004
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root usb 126 Feb 14 16:48 /proc/bus/usb/002/004

and it should work without problems for the user

make sure your user is in the scanner, lp and usb group

also check the executable or read permissions of the files installed by the drivers from Brother :idea:

OK, my user actually wasn't in the lp group, but even adding the user also to that group, doesn't solve the problem.
Now, my user is in usb,scanner and lp.

I installed the driver as you wrote in your first post, via rpm.
My device is:
Bus 007 Device 002: ID 04f9:0182 Brother Industries, Ltd Composite Device

$ ls /proc/bus/usb/007/002 -l
-rw-rw-rw- 1 root root 80 Feb 14 2011 /proc/bus/usb/007/002
And this should be the problem I guess...
But why is it in the root group? :?

I don't know exactly what executables to check...

2 ways to do that:

1) rpm2targz brscan3-0.2.5-2.x86_64.rpm the package and see what files are included, the search for that on your system via find or locate (slocate or mlocate need to be installed and a previous run of updatedb run)

2) rpm -q --filesbypkg -p ../path/to/file/brscan3-0.2.5-2.x86_64.rpm

/usr/local/Brother/sane/models2/ext2.ini is missing.

Note that I have another version of the driver: brscan2-0.2.5-1.x86_64.rpm.

Do you think the time to upgrade has come?

I'd say: go for it

(if a newer version is available for your specific scanner / AIO device is available)

but before: make a system-backup or some sort of backup if it worked before and you're dependent on scanning (e.g. a stage4-tarball)

I'm always doing that kind of things if critical parts (read: production, study or job-related things) are affected

good luck ! :)

Really? Do you think also a stage-4 is necessary?

In case of driver failure shouldn't be sufficient to uninstall via rpm and reinstall the old one?
Anyway, I'm nearly convinced it is a permission issue.

EDIT1: I created another user and added it to lp wheel audio usb users scanner groups and xsane starts!!!
Note also that I've also tried to delete my ~/.sane directory and to start xsane again, but it didn't work... I'm trying to logoff and login again.
EDIT2: And it works! Wow...
So, maybe the problem was the lp group.

just playing on the safe side

I've had bad experiences in the past and lost lots of time due to that

I've been struggling to get printing to work with the dcp-110c. Scanning works fine.

I've got cups to see the printer and installed the driver for it. However, nothing happens when trying to print.

During the course of troubleshooting, I tried the following:
Code:
cat config.txt | /usr/local/Brother/lpd/filterDCP110C
/usr/local/Brother/lpd/filterDCP110C: line 57: /usr/local/Brother/lpd/rastertobrij2: No such file or directory

Further searching pointed to a possible architecture problem (can't find the link to that page right now as been looking at so many!). Can anyone confirm if this (or other Brother printers) will work on 64bit (no multi-lib) or give me any other pointers on how to get this working?
