I have been gifted a Brother MFC-J5910DW all in one printer ( it seems to be able to do everything except make a cuppa).
I have downloaded the drivers from their website, linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1.gz and mfcj5910dwlpr-3.0.0-1.i386.deb and mfcj5910dwcupswrapper-3.0.0-1.i386.deb.
The driver site says the drivers need installed via the terminal, how do I install these drivers? please.
EDIT I have the following instructions
Step1. Download the tool.(linux-brprinter-installer-*.*.*-*.gz)
The tool will be downloaded into the default "Download" directory.
(The directory location varies depending on your Linux distribution.)
Step2. Open a terminal window and go to the directory you downloaded the file to in the last step.
Step3. Enter this command to extract the downloaded file:
Command: gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-*.*.*-*.gz
Step4. Get superuser authorization with the "su" command or "sudo su" command.
Step5. Run the tool:
Command: bash linux-brprinter-installer-*.*.*-* Brother machine name
Step6. The driver installation will start. Follow the installation screen directions.
When you see the message "Will you specify the DeviceURI ?",
For USB Users: Choose N(No)
I have completed Step3 and am stuck at Step4. Is the next command
sudo bash linux-brprinter-installer-*.*.*-* Brother MFC-J5910DW ?
I am worried about putting in commands that may alter what I don't want altered.
