Brother 32 bit Linux drivers installeren op 64 bit

Hieronder een handleiding om Brother 32 bits drivers op een 64 bits systeem te installeren.

Deze handleiding heb ik niet zelf geschreven maar komt van de Brother Linux Driver Homepage

Brother printer drivers are created and optimized for 32 bit version of Linux, but those can be used for 64 bit Linux also. Some additional steps are required.

For rpm users:
1. Install the standard C library for 32bit applications (e.g.
glibc.i686(Fedora), libstdc++ for 32bit(openSUSE))
2. Create some folders if it is required
2-1. Create /usr/lib/cups/filter if it does not exist.

Command1: mkdir /usr/lib/cups
Command2: mkdir /usr/lib/cups/filter

2-2. Create /usr/share/cups/model if it does not exist

Command: mkdir /usr/share/cups/model

3. Install the drivers.

4. Copy brlpdwrapperXXX files under /usr/lib/cups/filter/ to
/usr/lib64/cups/filter/

Command: cp /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper* /usr/lib64/cups/filter

For dpkg users:
1. Install the standard c library for 32bit applications (e.g.
lib32stdc++6(Debian) or ia32-libs(Ubuntu))
2. Create some folders if it is required
2-1. Create /usr/lib/cups/filter if it does not exist.

Command1: mkdir /usr/lib/cups
Command2: mkdir /usr/lib/cups/filter

2-2. Create /usr/share/cups/model if it does not exist

Command: mkdir /usr/share/cups/model

3. Install the drivers using “–force-architecture” or
“–force-all”option.

4. Copy brlpdwrapperXXX files under /usr/lib/cups/filter/ to
/usr/lib64/cups/filter/

Command: cp /usr/lib/cups/filter/brlpdwrapper* /usr/lib64/cups/filter

5. Copy libbrXXXX files under /usr/lib/ to /usr/lib32/ if /usr/lib32
exists.

Command : cp /usr/lib/libbr* /usr/lib32/
