@smokey01 - Sorry for the delay - HDD failure on my desktop. Hardware ID of the printer is probably essential to allowing CUPS to find the driver. Are you able to get this ID? example: 0x0282,13,1,"MFC-J625DW"

Here is a corrected version of the file previously uploaded: brother-print-scan-modified_fixed.tar.xz


Thanks jake I will check it out. I now have my hands on the printer so I should be able to get the printer ID. Will advise.


jake29, tried your new package and it didn't work either.

Device ID appears to be 025c.
lsusb reports: Bus 007 Device 002: ID 04f9:025c Brother Industries, Ltd

I hope that helps.

I also run this machine as root, not spot. Too many restrictions using spot.

When it didn't work using your package, well I turned it into a package then installed it, I tried using just the ppd file and that didn't work either.

I was expecting to see the driver (mfc-j415w) show up in cups for selection. It didn't. Just two entries of BrGenML1 for CUPS (en).

I've solved the Brother MFC-J415W printer problem with a little help from CatDude.
There is a script that will download and install the appropriate drivers for your brother printer and scanner. Unfortunately the script did not work properly in Fatdog64-720 as it requires dpkg, a debian package installer. The dpkg in Fatdog is a cut down version in busybox. The good news a full version is available in the package manager so I installed that.

Download a copy of the Download Install Tool here:
http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadend.aspx?c=us&lang=en&prod=mfcj415w_all&os=128&dlid=dlf006893_000&flang=4&type3=625

Directions on running the script will be displayed after agreeing to the EULA.

Before running the script you need to load the 32bit library SFS then Install perl and ghostscript from the package manager.

Thanks to all who offered help.

resetmsmice.sfs - This utility, resetmsmice, fixes scroll wheel issues with certain Wireless Microsoft mice in X.org, where the vertical wheel scrolls abnormally fast. Usage: 'Reset Now' and close.

SFS includes startup script.

Only required once per session. Without this utility, mouse usb transmitter needs to be unplugged and reconnected to resolve issue.
