I have not been able to find a printer driver for Pardus 2011 32-bit
for a Brother MFC-490CW. The drivers here :
http://en.pardus-wiki.org/Brother_DCP-357C
do not seem to work in Pardus 2011.

Thank you

Or here:

It was a similar subject in a Ubuntu forum to:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=996313

And I can not find it here to:
http://www.openprinting.org/printers

(A general tip is to buy a printer that is listed with 3 penguins.)

The first version for testing is available at:

WIth other linux, Brother supplies .deb or .rpm drivers on their website,
which work well.

Thank you for the quick response. I will test it this weekend.
