Am attempting to install a Brother MFC7860DW on the network and connect from my PCLOS machines. I have successfully been able to connect and print from my Virtualbox Windows vm however am having problems printing from native PCLOS. Have downloaded the printer driver (mfc7860dwlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.rpm) and the cupswrapper (cupswrapperMFC7860DW-2.0.4-2.i386.rpm) and confirmed they were installed:
>rpm -qa | grep -e mfc7860 -e cupswrapper
Have configured the printer in CUPS and successfully print a test page. The problem occurs when I try to print (File / Print). I first tried to print a two page PDF file and received approximately 20 pages duplex of gibberish. So opened up Kwrite and tried to print a single line of test and received about six duplex pages!! Looking at the output it appears like it might be all the printer language that is being printed and looking at the first couple of lines both the PDF doc or the Kwrite file, the second line for both is '%!PS-Adobe-3.0'. Now here is the strange part, if I print a printer test page from CUPS, the page comes out perfectly - its only when I attempt to print within the applications that I am getting the gibberish!!
Anyone know what is different between doing the print of the test page within CUPS and doing the file/print in the application? I did notice that when I check the network configuration on the printer through the browser that there are other services enabled on the printer. Am currently setup with the 'binary_p1' service as recommended by Brother on their web site.
Oh - PcLos is the current KDE version with all updates applied.
