Monochrome driver only for Brother HL-4040CN colour laser printer
Last modified: 2009-10-22 06:53:19 EDT
Description of problem:
The Brother HL-4040CN is a colour laser printer but the cups driver that comes with Fedora 10 for this printer is a monochrome driver.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install cups driver for Brother HL-4040CN
Monochrome driver is only driver available for HL-4040CN
Colour driver should be available
The driver available directly from Brother at http://solutions.brother.com/linux/sol/printer/linux/cups_drivers.html works with Fedora 10 but requires the installation of the 32-bit glibc libraries.
Please note that the driver that "works" from Brother's site is not the one marked foomatic but the one following.
Are you still seeing this problem? The available driver in an updated Fedora 10 install is 'pxlcolor'.
I'm not using Fedora 10 any longer so I can't say definitively but I am using Fedora 11 which is also 'pxlcolor' and it works fine.
