Hi,
I have a Brother MFC-J5910DW multi function printer. I have it working fine in window 7, and I'm currently trying to get it to work in Gentoo using cups. I have used the Brother driver installer for linux via their website and followed the prompts. I have tried using the cups webpage to print a test page but to no avail..

I currently have connected via wifi. I can ping it successfully and see the brother information page when I type the it's ip address into the Chrome browser.

It seems to always have difficulty finding this file brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj5910dw. I have tried to google for it and the only source that I can find is this one:[url] https://github.com/illwieckz/debian_copyist_brother/blob/master/material/abstract/printers/generated_content/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj5910dw[/url] I had put the contents of that file into a text file and made it executable. I then copied it to the directory it was searching for. alas still no luck...

when I run
Code:
lpstat -p
I get this error message:
Code:
printer Brother_MFC-J5910DW_ is idle.  enabled since Mon 12 Nov 2018 21:43:52 GMT
        File "/usr/libexec/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_mfcj5910dw" not available: No such file or directory


I very much could use some help on this issue that I am having.

Regards,
Steve555

Check https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Brother_networked_printer#Installing_the_drivers and try finding a similar model.

Hi Charles17,
I had configured the overlay and used emerge to get the Brother BrGenML1 driver for CUPS. I have a partial success though.. after some browsing on the net I found that I needed to set the connection as:
Code:
 lpd://<io-address>/BINARY_P1


I select the maintenance drop down list to print a test page. I get a response from cups telling me that it had sent the test page successfully to the printer but the problem is that the printer shows some activity for a few seconds and then prints nothing!

here is the output of "var/log/cups/error.log":

Hi guys,
great news! I have finally got my printer working!

what I had to do was this: on the Brother Gentoo wiki guide, I followed the rpm route. I created the directories that the rpm packages will be looking for:
Code:
mkdir -p /var/spool/lpd
mkdir -p /usr/lib64/cups/filter


Then I reinstalled the rpm drivers from the brother website:
Code:
rpm -i --nodeps --replacepkgs mfcj5910dwlpr-3.0.0-1.i386.rpm
rpm -i --nodeps --replacepkgs mfcj5910dwcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386.rpm


I then copied the brlpdwrapperdcp750cw file over to where it is needed:
Code:
cp /usr/lib64/cups/filter/brlpdwrapperdcp750cw /usr/libexec/cups/filter/


Next I used lpadmin to make it my default printer and told it which ppd file to use:
Code:
lpdadmin -p Brother_MFC_J5910DW -E -v  lpd://BRW00809286410B/BINARY_P1 -m brother_mfcj5910dw_printer_en.ppd


Crucially, cups will complain that it can't find
Code:
Unable to locate printer "BRN001BA9CAE7BF.local".


so all I had to was to was to put this line in my /etc/hosts file:
Code:
# IPv4 and IPv6 localhost aliases
127.0.0.1   localhost
::1      localhost

#Local Devices
192.168.0.4 BRN001BA9CAE7BF.local


And viola! the printer works, just need to sort out the scanning side, hopefully it will be pretty straight forward

Regards,
Nightcast2000

I works well as long your printer has stable (static) ip address. I had to setup avahi for DHCP assigned printer ip address to let CUPS resolve BRN00-MY-PRINTER.local
