  • Linux Lite: 2.2 64bit

  • CPU: i7

  • MEMORY: 32Gb

  • VIDEO CARD: onboard
When I go to Add Printer and Direct it to the driver I downloaded from Brother ( mfcj880dwcupswrapper-1.0.0-0.i386.deb ).
It says that it's not valid or something like that.
I have Extracted it.
If I try and use The List of Printers Available, my printer is not in the list.
If I can't install a printer my only option is to go back to windows and that would be a shame as this o/s looks good.

This is how I did it. It took a bit of working out so wrote it down for future reference.

Go to Brother site.

Choose Support then downloads

On USA site enter your model number In my case mfc-j6510dw
Click on the download in my case "MFC-J6510DW Downloads on our Online Solution Center"
Choose Linux
Choose linux(deb) if ubuntu type distro
Choose Driver Install Tool
Click "Agree to the EULA and Download"
Save the file (e.g to downloads folder)
PS ignore quotation marks "" when copying the steps below.
Right Click on downloaded file e.g in my case "linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1.gz" and choose "Extract Here"
This makes a new file in my case "linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1"
Right Click inside the download folder and choose "Open in Terminal"

In the terminal type  sudo bash linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1 (e.g the extracted file name in the downloaded folder)
Enter your password.
Enter Model Name. In my case "mfc-j6510dw"
You will see this
You are going to install following packages.
   mfcj6510dwlpr-3.0.0-1.i386.deb
   mfcj6510dwcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386.deb
   brscan4-0.4.3-3.amd64.deb
   brscan-skey-0.2.4-1.amd64.deb
OK? [y/N] ->

type y and enter
Will you specify the Device URI? [Y/n] ->
If you are using wireless type y and enter
You will see this.

select the number of destination Device URI. ->

Choose 12 and press enter

enter IP address -> e.g 192.168.001.*** (This info is found on the printer by pressing Menu. Choose Network. Choose WLAN. Choose TCP/IP Make a note of the IP address e.g 192.168.001.*** and type that on the terminal)

Hit enter
