Hello SuSE people,

I installed 10.3 on my son's computeerr today. He finally got sick of
windoze. All is well except for his printer. It is an MFC3420C. One of
those all in


Which manufacturer is that?

Its a Brother, which can be troublesome.

Sometimes Brother printers are very windows specific.
In which case you can sometimes get them to work
by sending print thru a windows machine with the
smb backend for CUPS.

Go to the brother site.

Look on the left, under Notes/Information,
where it says "For Linux Users"

I've been to that site and to every link that is associated with it. Spent
hours going over it. That is where I got the install instructions. Thanks for
trying to help anyway.
