Not sure way Manjaro install the printer on a clean install. I can’t get this printer install. I need it for my job. I need easy how to steps or I will have to go back to Ubuntu.
Brother Printer HL-L2380DW
A terrible threat! how long we can take till you do so? ;)
Brother Printer HL-L2380DW is a wireless Printer + Scanner,
there is a driver PKGBUILD on AUR brother-hl-l2380dw
to get printing work over cups:
1.0: install the driver and packages needed:
yaourt -S cups ghostscript avahi brother-hl-l2380dw
Start the Cups and Avahi service:
$ sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service $ sudo systemctl start avahi-daemon.service
Enable autostart of Cups and Avahi service:
$ sudo systemctl enable org.cups.cupsd.service $ sudo systemctl enable avahi-daemon.service
Install the printer via Cups Webinterface:
or the implementation of your Desktop Environment…
This is the message i get every time.
Add Printer Error
Unable to add printer:
You need use root to add printer.
user=root password same as the user you ad on installation
That is what I am using.
I may be wrong … but I think the basic package is missing:
$ sudo pacman -Ss system-config-printer [sudo] password for judd: extra/cups-pk-helper 0.2.6-1 A helper that makes system-config-printer use PolicyKit extra/system-config-printer 1.5.9-2 A CUPS printer configuration tool and status applet
could be but is installed by default, as i think
Installed but I reinstalled just in case. Still forbidden.
