My printer was picked up ok but the scanner wasn’t. It’s aHL-L23900w.
For the scanner, you could use the following solution:
- connect the scanner to your computer
- open a terminal and type # lsusb
- it should show the ID of you scanner (mine is: Bus 001 Device 005: ID 04b8:1115
Seiko Epson Corp. XP-342 343 345 Series) 1. under /etc/sane.d create a file called brother.conf (sudo nano /etc/sane.d/brother.conf)
- in this file, write the following: usb 0x*[first part of the ID]*
0x*[second part of the ID] *-- mine is usb 0x04b8 0x1115 1. save and exit
- under /etc/sane.d open the dll.conf file (sudo nano /etc/sane.d/dll.conf)
- make a new line at the bottom of this file and write samsung
- save and exit
- now you can test if yast recognize your scanner
And, if you did not before, do not forget to install sane-backends (and xsane)
Mostly Brother drivers are 32 bit so install glibc-32bit and libusb-1_0-0-32bit and libusb-0_1-4-32bit if necessary.
For this printer (HL-L2390DW), there seems to be a 64bit driver: https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadend.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=hll2390dw_us&os=127&dlid=dlf105203_000&flang=4&type3=564
I found that driver but have no idea how to install it. The directions are confusing.
I have the HL-L2390DW. OpenSUSE is the THE best distro for this printer I’ve found.
Download the Brother printer installation file from Brother: linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.3-1
After then opening a terminal and changing my directory to the one that contains the Brother file, I enter the following in the terminal:
*sudo bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.2.3-1 HL-L2390DW
I follow the prompts - yes-yes-yes (choose the auto option at the end of the list)-no-yes-yes.
Then everything, printer and scanner, work great.*
It is a rpm-package, so you can open/install via Yast (rightclick on the icon and then open with YastSoftware) or you can use the cli: rpm -ivh nameofthepackage.rpm
Sure. On the Brother site. But Brother’s bash script does the same thing, just a lot easier.
Everything installs at the same time. Printer-Scanner-Scanner key, all-in-one script.
I tried right clicking>open with yast software>entered my root password. Then a popup opens with “error” at the top with the brother EULA notice. I click OK button and everything just goes away and nothing happens.
I’m getting this error
[/manny@localhost:~> cd /home/manny/downloads bash: cd: /home/manny/downloads: No such file or directory manny@localhost:~> cd downloads bash: cd: downloads: No such file or directory CODE]
ls -al ~/
Its mostly named Downloads, not downloads…
Ok thanks. I tried individual drivers and it worked ok finally. I didn’t know about capitalization. Learned something today
Maybe two stupid questions:
- did you download the rpm file from the drivers website?
- which language do you use? (if your desktop is not in English, the chance is real that the download directory will not exist, it will have another name)
Sorry, I did not see the last three posts - forget my answer
Check for a Firewall setting on your computer. Disable the Firewall on your computer and try the network scanning again. Temporarily change your firewall/security settings to allow network connection. Your computer’s firewall/security software may be preventing the network connection from being established.
I got everything working. I’m stopping there
