Should explain that I am running Ubuntu 7.04 on my Asus Laptop. Ok, when
I go to the add printer setting in the administration menu, When I click
on add new printer, it reads the CUPS database and shows that the two
printers that I have connected to the Asus via. USB are detected. One
being the Brother DCP-115c and the other is my little Xerox Phaser 3115.
When I select the Brother printer and click on Forward, it shows in the
manufacturers box at the top Brother..which is good. Underneath is the
model of printer..cannot see DCP 115c in the menu.
According to the Brother website, I should be using the MFC-210 Debian
driver (Is this correct..?). Which also isn't listed.
Ok, if I need to install CSH, where can I find this package and how do I
install it (bearing in mind that I am going to have to transfer any
drivers to the machine via. USB stick since I dont't as yet have the
network operational on the Asus.
I had to look this up myself; 'sudo apt-get install --print-uris csh'
in a terminal should tell you where to get the package from, you can
download it on another machine and then install it with gdebi or dpkg
It sounds like you already found the drivers at;
Once you have csh installed, the other packages should also install
properly. This is from memory but I'm pretty sure this was the same
printer Doyle had, and it took me a bit of googling to discover that
the package needed csh to run the install scripts properly.
After that, the correct drivers should appear in the 'add printer' dialog
