• Problem installing Brother printer DCP-T700W


    Hi,

    I’ve been using Antergos for about a week and I love it, its fast & beautiful. But I’ve encountered some dificultes when setting up my printer, a Brother DCP-T700W.

    At first I tried using the built in driver but there was a problem with the PPD file. I downloaded the official drivers from brothers website, but they only offer an installer script and drivers for Debian (.deb), Fedora (.rpm) distributions.

    http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=as_ot&lang=en&prod=dcpt700w_all

    I’ve tried installing the .deb version by converting it to an arch package with debtap, but it didn’t work, it threw an erro saying “architecture missing”.

    Then I downloaded the source code, but Brother did not provide documentation. There was no ./configure and there was no install target. I was able to do “make” and it created this 2 files brcupsconfig.o and brcupsconfpt1. I dont know what to do with these files.

    I the source code file I found a PPD file for the printer, I was able to install it using this file but whenever I tried to print, it resulted in an error that said "cups filter not installed".

    I copied this same file PPD to /usr/share/cups/model/Brother/ and installed cups-filters with pacman, but printer does not print, jobs leave and no error message is displayed, but I’m not able to print yet.

    Please help me. Thanks in advance.

  • Hello. I just recently installed Antergos and enjoying it so far. I’ve also used Archlinux in the past and I have a Brother MFC-5440cn, older model. While using it with 32 bit OSes I was able to get it working, but since using 64 bit distros, I haven’t been able to get it to print. I’m not sure why. It does work with .deb & .rpm since Brother supply the drivers. Just a thought! I haven’t tried with Antergos yet.

    I don’t know for sure yet, but I was reading this https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Arch_User_Repository on “Sharing and maintaining packages” section…

    As this package is “derived”(more like a copy/paste) from another I was wondering if there is another way to make things simple as patching from original or even making one generic script to help everybody who uses brother printers.

    Hmmmm… I don’t know…
    AFAIK Arch Linux standards is more similar to RPMs than DEBs (but I can be wrong), also as I read in https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/dpkg/, they doesn’t recommend to use dpkg, but if doesn’t break anything, there is no problem to use it and you forgot to mention that if was installed by dpkg must be removed by dpkg in case any problem.

    …I was been thinking in something more clever that can be used on any Brother linux driver available as Brother did for installing on RPM or DEB based systems.

  • @Edwin-Foss said in Problem installing Brother printer DCP-T700W:

    dpkg must be removed by dpkg in case any problem.

    You could make a bash script, the hard part would be to have all the variables like the download URIs and the model numbers. Maybe the user can download the rpms ans tell the script where to find them . I we could do it together.

  • This is the same link that you quote above
    link Drivers Debian

    LPR printer driver (deb package) + CUPSwrapper printer driver (deb package)

  • @alfonsofdezyf

    Brother’s programers already did a bash installer for Debian and RedHat based distros, I’ve been reading the source code but it has nearly 3000 lines and I don’t know any good tool to debug bash script which only gives me the option of run “sh” in verbose and verify the output, also I installed one rpm based distro in vbox to be my test subject.

  • Install dpkg from the AUR and use the driver install tool (script) from brothers support site: http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadend.aspx?c=as_ot&lang=en&prod=dcpt700w_all&os=128&dlid=dlf006893_000&flang=4&type3=625&dlang=true

    Once downloaded, put this file in a separate folder as it will need to be extracted and run.
    Next, make the file executable, run the file and follow the instructions.
    This script will install the drivers and create uninstall scripts for each one in the same folder.

  • @james

    It’s not my intention but sorry if it’s sounds rude…
    Mostly will work, but you forgot the most important thing, NEVER use another packaging management system when you don’t know what the foreign package management system will do, there are 3 big reasons for that:

    1 - Still there no real naming convention for all files between all distros branches;
    2 - All package management systems still doesn’t share a common database for installing, upgrading and/or removing anything, which gives foreseeable broken packages with version conflicts, wrong files overwrite, wrong paths, misconfigured environment variables and many, many other things that can happen while reason number 1 never gets fixed;
    3 - And last but not least, misguide newcomers to learn the “wrong” way to solve the problems when they really don’t know what they doing.

  • I don’t in anyway think your comments are rude, and hope you don’t take my response as such either.
    I understand your concerns and agree with you for the most part. The Brother driver tool script will download and install the correct drivers from brothers own site, as well as creates uninstall scripts to use if needed. These drivers do follow the XDG file and folder specifications. I’d also like to note that I have never had an issue with the driver install tool (script) from Brother script under arch. However, I also agree that someone that doesn’t know what they are doing, and cannot fix their own systems shouldn’t use these scripts. I also believe that such a person should not be using the AUR or even Arch in general. Maybe if I get some time I will create another AUR entry for this particular printer, but for now using the script is the easiest way of getting it going.
