[SOLVED] Brother DCP-J572DW printer CUPS configuration

Hello, I am trying to add a Brother DCP-J572DW printer with the CUPS web interface.
I tried a couple of protocols with the respective urls and I did my best to choose the most approiate ones. Although, every time I would add the printer it won't print any job.

e.g. I tried Internet Printing Protocol which had the same outcome of the others

ipp://ip-address/ipp/print

The only drivers reporting the correct model name of my printer are the following:

https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/brother-dcpj572dw/

Even though the description says those drivers are actually for another printer.

I wasn't able to find the appropriate drivers or the correct url protocol to use. Can anybody help?

That driver is correct, only the description is wrong.

The printer should also support AirPrint, so it could be installed as a driverless printer in linux as well.

Re: [SOLVED] Brother DCP-J572DW printer CUPS configuration

How would I install it with AirPrint?
I just looked it up but couldn't understand exactly what should I do in my case.

Also, I can't figure out why CUPS won't add the printer. I was used to open CUPS and automatically install a network printer selecting it between the ones listed in CUPS.
Although, this time no printer was listed. And I wasn't able to install it manually as well.
Is ther a reason for that?

Am i missing something?

I checked also the Brother support page and came out with a solution.

Although, I'm not sure this is the right way to go.

Can anybody tell me whether I should proceed this way or not?

Re: [SOLVED] Brother DCP-J572DW printer CUPS configuration

I tried doing it that way but it didn't work.

The printer is stil not responding.

I also tried configuring it automatically with the KDE Printers tool.
It identified the printer as a Network Printer but it couldn't proceed with the installation due to an error message prompting:

«The name org.fedoraproject.Config.Printing was not provided by any .service files»

Can this be the issue? How do I solve it?

Re: [SOLVED] Brother DCP-J572DW printer CUPS configuration

The example is in the arch wiki for CUPS:

# lpadmin -p AirPrint -E -v "ipp://10.0.1.25/ipp/print" -m everywhere    # Driverless queue (Apple AirPrint or IPP Everywhere)

where -p AirPrint can be any name you choose, and the ip address is changed for your specific printer.
