    Default Fixing Trouble with Brother Printer

    Upon upgrade of cups a Brother MFC-255CW stopped printing. Downloading and running the new Linux installer fixed the issue. Answering a few questions made the printer great again:

    Default Re: Fixing Trouble with Brother Printer

    Install of brother printers works best with pattern 32bit being already installed.

    reinstall did not help to fix the issue.

    Maybe the firewall needs to be configured?

    When in trouble always temporarily stop the firewall. Sample install with firewall disabled: https://forums.opensuse.org/showthre...58#post3049858
