Thread: Brother HL 2140 driver missing from install DVD

    Default Brother HL 2140 driver missing from install DVD

    I'm installing from the 15.0 DVD and the Brother HL 2140 printer driver is missing.

    I searched the forum and found nothing about where to get it.

    I searched in software.opensuse.org and nothing comes up.

    I'm lost. Where can I get this driver? Why is it not on the install DVD?

    openSUSE is open source only no closed source is included. Get the driver from Brother it is their proprietary code

    That particular model is supported by a foomatic postscript driver. Do you have the relevant OpenPrinting packages installed?

    For reference, I have the following installed...
    Code:
    # zypper se -s OpenPrinting
    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
