Brother Printers & CUPS
Authored by: Happy_Chappy on Aug 28, '02 06:37:42AM

Hi There,
I used Gimp_print 4.2 on an emac and a Beige G3 300, and i can print to a brother 1040 and a 1670n. I installed the old driver (10.1) for the 1040 brother printer (File hl12m134.hqx on the brother server) and my 1240 worked fine.
When using the print centre press option and click on the add button and you will get heaps of options. Try them all. I can also print to my epson 670 and to my absolute delight my epson photoex (via a parallel to usb cable) You can configure them with out the web browser palava, just option click add printer.
The addition of CUPS support is worth the $US129 upgrade price. The new printer support is a powerful argument in support of corporate support of opensource projects.
