We have this Brother printer
running in the office.
And, DUH, I suddenly realized that this printer meets ALL my needs in the studio. it scans 11 x 17 just like my current HP Printer and also prints large format (11 x 17) sheets. It's also wireless. So, if need be, I can print from my laptop of notebook.
I can remove the current HP scanner and put the Brother in it's place. I can also get rid of my small HP Deskjet 3320.
This is a terrifc solution! It'll really help me in the studio.
The big question is, will PCLinuxOS be able to access all it's features?
The repository has package task-printing-misc which covers miscellaneous printers
Meta package for printer drivers for miscellaneous printers
This meta package will install every printer driver available for printers from
This package should cover printers from:
Alps, Anitech, Apollo, Apple, Avery, Brother, Citizen, Citoh, Compaq, Dec,
Dell, Dymo, Fujitsu, IBM, Imagen, Infotec, Kodak, Kyocera, Minolta, Mitsubishi,
Nec, Oce, Olivetti, Panasonic, Pcpi, Pentax, QMS, Ricoh, Samsung, Star,
Tektronix and Xerox.
And a package driver for the Brother P-touch.
Will I be required to install a Linux driver from Brother and could doing so potentially break my system?
