• Brother Printer Hl-l2380DW Won't print


    I have a Brother Printer HL–L2380DW that installs but when I go to print it ‘Fails to connect to the printer’.
    The printer install and prints just fine with Manjaro. I use the same steps. Even Ubuntu prints just fine.
    What am I missing? Antergos is my favorite system. I don’t want to use Manjaro.

  • which printer manager are you using??

    • Install brother-hl-l2380dw yaourt -S brother-hl-l2380dw
    • make shure cups is running: systemctl status org.cups.cupsd.service
    • go to http://localhost:631/ and click add printer on admin tab, enter “root” as
      username and password and it will guide you through the setups. make sure you select ipp
    • when asked enter printer address use: ipp://printer_ip/ipp/port1 make sure you enter correct printer ip
      address /(replace printer_ip with the IP-adress)
    • when asked for drivers select brother and then select brother-hl-l2380dw
    • it should work now, try printing a test page
