[CUPS][Brother_DCP-L3560CDW] - Does not work/outputs garbage

Hi!

I have a problem installing a Brother printer (DCP-L3560CDW).
The printer is located using zeroconf and added in the CUPS webgui;

Description:    Brother DCP-L3560CDW series
Location:    Local Printer
Driver:    Generic IPP Everywhere Printer (color, 2-sided printing)
Connection:    lpd://BRNB42200DA62C4/BINARY_P1
Defaults:    job-sheets=none, none media=iso_a4_210x297mm sides=two-sided-long-edge

When I print the test page the printe outputs garbage (a lot of pages).

Any ideas?

My first inclination would be to assume that is the wrong print driver.  Are you sure that a "Generic IPP Everywhere Printer" is correct for your L3560?  Why?

Is this a USB device?

Sanity check: the printer is connected via network, right? ewaller was faster.

AirPrint printers "should" work out of the box, but using IPP with lpd:// instead of ipp:// looks fishy.
You could try manually setting one of

ipp://*ip goes here*/ipp/port1
ipp://*ip goes here*/ipp/print
ipp://*ip goes here*/ipp
http://*ip goes here*:631/ipp

The linux driver for this printer is here: https://www.brother.co.uk/support/dcp-l … /downloads
As you can see they are either .rpm or .deb file. You can package those files for Archlinux  by following this: https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Packag … er_drivers
I don't have experience packaging so just ask for help in the forums if you need it.

Yes and no. Yes one can copy the PKGBUILD as a model but it is a different model and the driver I specified is specific to the printer.

Ok I packaged the deb driver and installed it!
It worked fine.

Here is the PKGBUILD file:

pkgname=brother-dcpl3560cdw-lpr-bin
pkgver=3.5.1
pkgrel=1
pkgdesc="LPR driver for Brother DCPL L3560CDW printer"
arch=("x86_64")
url="https://www.brother.co.uk/support/dcp-l3560cdw/downloads"
license=("EULA")
source=("https://download.brother.com/welcome/dlf105756/dcpl3560cdwpdrv-3.5.1-1.i386.deb")
md5sums=("d7f33576487505bc50cb29bf7d4660fc")
package() {
        tar -xf data.tar.gz -C "${pkgdir}"
}
