Sub_title: How to make DCP120C working under Puppy
 

Hello,

I am desperately trying to print from Puppy to a Brother DPC120C printer/scanner both directly by USB and via network by smb.

Context:
Works in Windows env.
works from Mandriva cups using MFC210C driver from brother solution

Based on brother recommendation
http://solutions.brother.com/linux/sol/printer/linux/cups_wrapper_install.html
I download lpr and cups packages
for MFC210C :

Using rpm packages, nedeed to get unrpm and csh but, I not sure that is correctly install.

Finally nothing out of the printer, for example trying on URI : usb://Brother/DCP-120C
job seems to be send nothing happens I got a "Pause" message

So I need help!

mpierrat25,

one thing you could investigate is whether creating symlinks, for the extracted /usr/lib/libbrcompij2.so.1.0.2 has any effect:

Code:

ln -s /usr/lib/libbrcompij2.so.1.0.2 /usr/lib/libbrcompij2.so.1
ln -s /usr/lib/libbrcompij2.so.1.0.2 /usr/lib/libbrcompij2.so


Also, if you run the command brprintconfij2, does it run without any errors?

@muggins,

You are right :
no link no brprintconfig2 file

so I try to re-install lpr

Code:
unrpm MCF210Clpr....


but, since I put (as recommended by brother) the rpm files in a temp directory , it create a usr tree at this place.

What is the right way to unrpm ?


By the way, how to cute and paste in rxvt ?

mpierrat25,

try extracting mfc210.tar.bz2 to /.

I've no idea why cut'n'paste is different with p4. With previous pups, dragging cursor over rxvt text copies, then either control+v, shift+insert, or middle mouse button click, pastes. But with p4, only middle mouse button seems to work.
