  Linux System Getting Started Tutorial: Installing Brother printer in Linux
  Add Date : 2016-10-26      
  Question: I have a Brother HL-2270DW laser printer, I want to print a document from my Linux machine. How do I install the appropriate drivers on my computer and use it?

Brother to affordable compact laser printer is known. You can use the price of less than $ 200 to get a high quality WiFi / duplex laser printer, and the price is still falling. Best of all, they also provide a good Linux support, so you can download and install them in the printer driver in Linux. A year ago I bought a HL-2270DW, I know it is very satisfied with the performance and reliability.

Here is how to install and configure the Brother printer driver in Linux. This tutorial, I'll demonstrate to install USB HL-2270DW laser printer driver.

First connect your printer via a USB cable to Linux.


During the preparation phase, the brothers entered the official support site, enter your Model (eg: HL-2270DW) Find your brother printer model.

Go to the following page, select your Linux platform. For Debian, Ubuntu or some other version, select "Linux (deb)". For Fedora, CentOS or RHEL select "Linux (rpm)".

Next, you will find your printer driver LPR and CUPS wrapper driver. The former is a command-line driven, which allows you to manage and configure your web printer. Especially graphics-based interface for CUPS (local, remote) printer maintenance very useful. I suggest you install both drivers. Click "Driver Install Tool" to download the installation file.

Before running the installation file, you need to do another thing on a 64-bit Linux systems.

Because Brother printer drivers for 32-bit Linux system development, so you need to install the 32-bit libraries in accordance with the following method.

In the early Debian (6.0 or earlier) or Ubuntu (11.04 or earlier), install the following package.

$ Sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
Has been introduced for the new multi-architecture Debian or Ubuntu is concerned, you can install the following package:

$ Sudo apt-get install lib32z1 lib32ncurses5
The above package instead of ia32-libs package. Or you only need to install:

$ Sudo apt-get install lib32stdc ++ 6
If you are using Red Hat-based Linux, you can install:

$ Sudo yum install glibc.i686
Driver Installation

Now unzip the downloaded drivers.

$ Gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1.gz
Next, run the following installation file like this.

$ Sudo sh ./linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1
You will be asked to enter your printer model. Enter your printer model, such as "HL-2270DW".

After consent GPL agreement, to accept any subsequent default problems.

Now LPR / CUPS printer driver has been installed. Your next step is to configure the printer.

Printer Configuration

My next step is to configure and manage via web-based CUPS the Brother printer.

First verify that the CUPS daemon is already started.

$ Sudo netstat -nap | grep 631
Open a browser and enter http: // localhost: 631. You will see the following printer management interface.

Enter "Administration" tab, click "Manage Printers" Printer Options.

In the following pages you will see your printer (HL-2270DW). Click the printer name.

In the drop-down menu "Administration", select "Set As Server Default". This will set your printer-bit system default printer.

When authentication is required, enter your login information Linux.

Now basic configuration has been basically completed. To test print, open any document browsing program (eg: PDF browser) and printed. You will see "HL-2270DW" and was listed as the default printer settings.

The printer should be able to work. You can see through the CUPS web printer status and printer management tasks.
