You need to follow the procedures and do all that is posted.
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=306619#306619

You have all the stuff downloaded to /root, but not all installed.

Example steps to install what you downloaded:
(I changed this to match the files you downloaded)
Quote:
Download and install debbi-1.2.pet from the attachment below. It copies the file debbi to the folder /root/my-applications/bin.

This little program will extract the contents of a DEB package to your hard drive and run the post-install script. You will use it for both printer and scanner drivers.

Go to your /root folder and press the back-tick key (this is usually the lower-case ~ key above Tab). This opens a terminal window. To display a list of files, type:
Code:
ls

Now type:
Code:
debbi hl1210wlpr-3.0.1-1.i386.deb

followed by
Code:
debbi hl1210wcupswrapper-3.0.1-1.i386.deb

This procedure is an ideal situation for using Tab Completion to avoid having to type the whole filename. Try typing:
Code:
debbi <space> mfc <tab> <enter>

In most cases, you can ignore any error messages from the debbi script.

Debbi installs the printer driver and puts a PPD file in the folder /usr/share/cups/model. Depending on your model, it may also add a printer in CUPS attached to a USB port, ready to use.

Thank you all! Very Happy for helping me in getting my new printer work!

In my descriptions I have a tendency to get into details that I am not sure people really care about.

This is why, I will only say that a great part of the delay in making my printer work was because at that same time I was solving other problems that had nothing to do with printing or computing and that another important part the delay was due to errors caused by eagerness to recover the time I was losing.

Perhaps, if at the time of my second to last post, I had known what the Console Tab Completion meant and how to use it, that post would not have been the failure report it was.

Thank you for teaching me! Smile Very Happy Smile
If it not were because I know that some people believe some acronyms insult their intelligence and nobody’s intelligence deserves being insulted, I would end this post writing GBYA. Wink

Antipodal, for what it's worth, your English is quite good. Better than most native English speakers, I'd say. Laughing

Also, I can move topics around in the forum but I can't add them to existing topics.

I haven't seen that before. What does it stand for - maybe "Good Bye Y'All" ?

Flash: Thank you, but if my mother and her family (with whom I was brought up) were still alive they would have taken your words not as a compliment as I do, but as a disparagement, they would have felt guilty for having established themselves almost 7 thousand miles away from their UK homeland and would probably have tried to put the blame on me for spending my time talking to non English speakers and forgetting the excellent English they spoke.

Flash: That's OK. Thank you. Smile
Regarding the heading of this topic, I will try to delete the misleading words "color copier" somebody has inserted there and replace them for "printer" because Brother HL-1212W printer has no color capabilities.
If I fail, please do it for me. Smile

First Edition: to change the wording of the last part of my first sentence.
