Installing CUPS + HL2240 + MFC240C on Debian Wheezy
Scanner driver brscan-0.2.4-0.i386.deb is done separately.
# Install cups 1.5.0-5
apt-get install cups cups-bsd
dpkg -i hl2240lpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb
dpkg -i cupswrapperHL2240-2.0.4-2.i386.deb
# Enable remote access in cupsd.conf
+ Allow from 192.168.*
# Same for the MFC240C drivers.
dpkg -i mfc240clpr-1.0.1-1.i386.deb
dpkg -i mfc240ccupswrapper-1.0.1-1.i386.deb
# For remote printing, use lpd/raw, which will go through a path that
# looks like a local print job on the server. At least the MFC-240C
# doesn't support remote printing properly out of the box .
# EDIT: problem reappeared. This time I get /var/log/cups/error_log:
E [17/Sep/2011:08:30:08 -0400] [Job 8] Unable to send data to printer.
I plugged it into a different USB port and it seemed to work again.
