I brought it home, unpacked it, and set it up.

But my mind changed after a few days: Can you also try whether your printers work with the model selection Brother HL and the driver hl7x0 on any Ubuntu version? If printer is not found automatically, type in IP address of the printer and probe for it. I recommend installing and using the Brother drivers — I did so and the printer works flawlessly through the network with llnux.

I then printed a test page and the printer began putting out an endless amount of blank pages. Search this Thread Advanced Hrother. Switching to the driver lets me print images.

I can’t print the testpage. Perhaps I did use a ppd file.
