Brother is pretty good at supporting it's Linux customer base and has put out drivers in both rpm and deb formats.  When I rpm2targz them and install, I can't seem to get my system to recognize that the files are there.  Does anyone else have this printer?  Or this problem?

Hi,
I have similar problem with MFC 3240C. I tried to install  printer with deb. files but system can't read it.

Pardus doesn't seem to do .deb's and the rpm2targz  doesn't help either.  I'm not sure why.  I've followed the Brother solutions page and no luck.  Are you able to see the printer from CUPS?

Yes, I do. Pardus recognize my printer, but printer itself does't work. I tried to find competible drive from localhost:631. No luck.

I understand.  I've had computer troubles this last month.  If I can find out how to compile a pisi from the source code on Brother's Linux Solutions site, I think we'll be in business.  Cheesy

I just submitted a bug/request for some support for the Brother MFC printers.  Bug number 6222.  I hope it's in the right place.
