Hi,

I installed my Brother DCP-750CW roughly like this (order of command may be different)

Code:
Install CUPS
emerge cups
/etc/init.d/cupsd start
rc-update add cupsd default

Install Driver
Download the LPD and PPD RPM drivers from Brother’s Linux driver site.
emerge rpm tcsh
rpm  -ihv  --nodeps  (lpr-drivername)
rpm  -ihv  --nodeps  (cupswrapper)
Verify the drivers installed correctly: rpm  -qa  |  grep  -e (lpr-drivername)  -e  (cupswrapper-drivername)
Create a symlink to the filter: ln -s /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper[printer name] /usr/libexec/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper[printer name]


then I declared a printer in localhost:631
I used different manners
LPR/LPD
Socket
Ipp
but in any case, when I print , the job stay in the queue with "unknown" for user, document and time and "stopped" for sate.

here is the end of the error_log

Code:

I have tried to reinstall the cups driver without succeeding.

Code:

What should I do ?

You may need to create the install directory

Code:
mkdir -p /usr/lib64/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperdcp750cw


You should probably copy the resultant .ppd file to /etc/cups/ppd

Thank you.

Ok but what to do after creating this dir. (BTW is it really a directory or is it a file ?)

Because

Code:
jaaf-P55A-UD4 Downloads # rpm -ivh --nodeps --force dcp750cwcupswrapper-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm
Préparation...                       ################################# [100%]
Updating / installing...
   1:dcp750cwcupswrapper-1.0.1-1      ################################# [100%]
rm: impossible de supprimer « /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperdcp750cw »: est un dossier
/usr/local/Brother/Printer/dcp750cw/cupswrapper/cupswrapperdcp750cw: ligne694: /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperdcp750cw: est un dossier
jaaf-P55A-UD4 Downloads #


Should I reinstall the drivers or not ?

The ppd file seems to be here :

Code:
jaaf-P55A-UD4 Downloads # ls -a /etc/cups/ppd
.  ..  .keep_net-print_cups-0  BrotherDCP-750CW.ppd  DCP750CW.ppd
jaaf-P55A-UD4 Downloads #

Not a CUPS expert but looks like you may be ok now.
Try setting up the printer again via admin interface.

You could check the file creation date and mod time using "stat" command
It may well be all has gone well but the installer is trying to remove the temp. dir

Since the beginning I could (and I still can) set up the printer in cups. The trouble is that it doesn't print.

Eventually I could install a working printer ; here is what I did :

Code:
rm -R /usr/lib64/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperdcp750cw

then I re-installed the cups driver

Code:
jaaf-P55A-UD4 Downloads # rpm -ivh --nodeps --force dcp750cwcupswrapper-1.0.1-1.i386.rpm
Préparation...                       ################################# [100%]
Updating / installing...
   1:dcp750cwcupswrapper-1.0.1-1      ################################# [100%]
jaaf-P55A-UD4 Downloads #


I re-setup a new printer on localhost:631

and it worked. I guess only the /usr/lib64/cups/filter folder was to be created at first.

I had also to add this command (taken from the Ubuntu wiki) to avoid the cut of the upper part of the text

Code:
brprintconf_dcp750cw  -pt A4


After that I declared a normal user for the printer and everything is ok now.

I just have to install the scanner part.

Thank you for having put me on the right track.
