Like most people with a non-HP printer I have a printer driver issue. I know, I know a most boring issue...I will try to keep it short.
Considering the Brother Fax 2820 ( combo fax/Printer/Scanner ) is rather old, I don't see any point to add the driver to the repo's. While that would be nice, I imagine that there would be a very small number of people who would benefit from that addition so the work/benefit ratio is probably very small
Which brings me to another question, installing the drivers from the RPM on Brother's site. This looks to be remarkably straightforward however it goes against my grain of ( Only install software from the repos! )
Basically is it safe to do so when the software ( Printer driver ) has not been properly "Vetted"? I also wonder about how easy it is to "poison" an RPM that is outside the repos! ( Yeah, I realize that sounds kinda paranoid, but probably hearkens back to using windows and scanning every piece of software I ever downloaded with antivirus/anti malware software).
Thank you and I apologize if this is in the wrong place.
