• Brother HL-L2380DW


    Does any one have the simple steps to install this printer. I have installed Brother Driver from AUR. I can’t find the next steps to do. Trying to reinstall just does not work. Any help would be great.

  • You just install this one:
    https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/brother-hl-l2380dw/

    and check if ghostscript is installed:

    pacman -Ss ghostscript
    

    If yes then check Cups status:

    systemctl status org.cups.cupsd.service
    

    if cups is running:
    http://localhost:631/admin

    and setup a new printer.

    or Printer settings from your Desktop environment.

    If Cups do not find driver insert manually:

    /opt/brother/Printers/HLL2380DW/cupswrapper/brother-HLL2380DW-cups-en.ppd
