Arch Linux Package for CUPS Brother MFC-J280W Printer

28 Aug. 2013 Posted by joe666 in Technology

If you are looking to make your Brother MFC-J280W Printer work in Linux you probably already found the BROTHER linux drivers page.

There are packages for rpm and deb based systems, and if you want to save the hassle of decompressing, installing, etc in your Arch Linux install there is a new package in AUR that will allow you a quick setup of this particular model.

And for the new comers...

joe666@Kerberus:~/aur$ wget 
joe666@Kerberus:~/aur$ tar -xvzf brother-mfc-j280w.tar.gz 
joe666@Kerberus:~/aur$ cd brother-mfc-j280w 
joe666@Kerberus:~/aur/brother-mfc-j280w$ makepkg -s 
joe666@Kerberus:~/aur/brother-mfc-j280w$ sudo pacman -U brother-mfc-j280w-1.1.3-1-x86_64.pkg.tar.xz
