Brother laser printer installation on devuan

i have a brother hl-2270dw laser printer that i want to install the driver downloaded from manufacturer website.  the .deb package I downloaded is 32 bit package and i'm running into difficulty to install onto the 64-bit devuan. 


erdos@t60:~/Downloads$ sudo dpkg -i hl2270dwlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb
[sudo] password for erdos: 
dpkg: error processing archive hl2270dwlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb (--install):
 package architecture (i386) does not match system (amd64)
Errors were encountered while processing:
 hl2270dwlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb

Re: Brother laser printer installation on devuan

I'm assuming you've already tried using CUPs with the available drivers provided there?

In my case I use the driver for a slightly different Brother model: I have a DCP 9015CDW and use the DCP 9010CDW dirver which works fine, including duplex.

A cursory search finds there's a discussion of drivers to use for your model here: http://openprinting.org/printer/Brother … -HL-2270DW.

Re: Brother laser printer installation on devuan

Forget openprinting.org, use the install commands from Brother.

Brother has a prerequisite explained here:
https://support.brother.com/g/b/faqend. … 100548_000

Pre-required Procedure (5)
Related distributions

Debian 64 bit version, Ubuntu 64 bit version


Related products/drivers

printer/PC-FAX drivers


Requirement

ia32-libs or lib32stdc++ is required to be installed.

This means you need to install one of the mentioned packages prior to installing the .deb for your printer.

Drivers can be found here;
https://support.brother.com/g/b/downloa … all&os=128

As I also have a Brother machine (MFC in my case) I d/l'ed the instructions years ago, as well as the drivers for my device, and in there I found to use the force option for dpkg:

dpkg  -i  --force-all <driver-name>.deb

HTH!

Re: Brother laser printer installation on devuan

install i386 .deb didn't work for me on the 64-bit ascii.

I ended up downloading the 'Driver Install Tool' available on the Brother website for this printer (hl-2270DW) and followed the instruction to run the script, it automatically pulls in the needed package and installs  the printer.

Driver install Tool is available here:
