• Brother Printer HL-L2380DW

    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.

  • 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.

  • Where do you get the message?
    From browser cups interface?
    Try this inside browser:
    http: //[email protected]:631/admin

  • 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.
