Setting up the DCP-357c in Ubuntu 10.10

In this earlier post I wrote down how I installed my Brother DCP-357c in Ubuntu 10.04

After upgrading to 10.10 the top edge of every page was cut off.
I ran into a post on loxdev.knc.nc where a the same problem was explained.

  1. Remove the brother-lpr-driver-extra & brother-cups-wrapper-extra from Synaptic Package Manager
  2. Download the drivers from the Brother site
  3. Then issue the following command
  4. # sudo mkdir -p /usr/share/cups/model
    # sudo mkdir -p /var/spool/lpd/dcp353c
    # sudo dpkg -i --force-all dcp353c*
    
  5. Download the brscan2 from the Brother site and then
  6. # sudo dpkg -i brscan*
  7. Then give the scanner the proper permissions
  8. # gksudo gedit /lib/udev/rules.d/40-libsane.rules
  9. Add this to the end of the hardware list of the file
  10. #Brother DCP-357C
    ATTRS{idVendor}==”04f9″, ATTRS{idProduct}==”01e4″, ENV{libsane_matched}=”yes”
  11. And finally restart udev:
# sudo service udev restart
