Linux printer all in one drivers
This is definitely one area in which Linux lags behind in is hardware support; especially with printer/all in one devices. Being a long time Suse user, it was lately recommended that I switch to Ubuntu as a possible solution to my inability to get my Brother MFC5840CN working with Linux. Both distros seem to detect the machine but no ink on paper yet. Brother says they have drivers on their site [http://solutions.brother.com/linux/en_us/index.html] and a BR-Script PPD file is suppose to ship on the install cd. Both have been a negative so far. No Linux ppd file on cd and online drivers do not have enough organized info. for me to resolve the issue. Anyone care to help, chime in! btw Ubuntu seems to be leading the pack with ease of use and functionality as well as striving to maintain true Linux roots. Am using 7.10 and working/playing with 8.04 beta currently.
