Brother HL3040CN in cups

After consulting
http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bs … l#cwi_img1
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Brother_DCP-7020
and
http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Cups

I'm still kind of stuck on the (first time) installation of this printer.

After rpmextract-ing hl3040cncupswrapper-1.1.1-4.i386.rpm  and hl3040cnlpr-1.1.1-4.i386.rpm I was presented with a folder usr containing a bin and local. these were copied to the /usr folder. I've blocked usblp in rc.conf (.., !usblpp... ) . there appears to be no folder var in these packages.

After connecting the printer on a free USB port in /var/log/messages:

...kernel: usb 1-4: usbfs: interface 0 claimed by usblp while 'usb' sets config #1

which is, I believe, a bad omen.

Did someone successfully install this printer or have hints on what to try next`?

Re: Brother HL3040CN in cups

Solution:
Edit modprobe.conf

#
# /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf (for v2.6 kernels)
#
blacklist usblp

reboot
install hal dbus hal-cups-utils

pacman -S hal dbus hal-cups-utils

extract the Brother drivers: (http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/bs … prn1a.html)

rpmextract.sh hl3040cncupswrapper-1.1.1-4.i386.rpm
rpmextract.sh hl3040cnlpr-1.1.1-4.i386.rpm

Copy the resulting usr folder to /usr

Start cups hal and (re)connect the printer.

navigate to http://localhost:631. Under adminstration the usb printer is now listed and can be set up.

Re: Brother HL3040CN in cups

The installation instructions are on Brother's website.  Make sure and check all the prerequisites.  Haven't tried my Brother printer on Arch yet, but have had successful installs on Fedora and Mageia by following all the instuctions on Brother's website.

Re: Brother HL3040CN in cups

ratzfatz, this thread is over a year old. There is a more recent thread about this printer, if it doesn't help you can open a new one referencing what you have tried and where it failed.
