Continuing the discussion from Dump your inxi -Fxzc0 here and bookmark it:
I have recently been forced to ditch my old all in one printer / scanner and decided to replace it with a mono laser printer / scanner (Brother DCP-L2500D).
I have been able to use the printer courtesy of "brother-dcp-l2500d" contained in the AUR - this contains the LPR & CUPS drivers for the printer but not any drivers for the scanner to enable it to work with simple scan.
I have had a look at the support page at brother and it does contain driver downloads for the scanner but these are in with rpm or deb format. I do not know if these formats are compatible or even how I would go about installing them if they were?
Brother support page here : http://support.brother.com/g/b/downloadtop.aspx?c=gb&lang=en&prod=dcpl2500d_eu
Can anyone advise if I can use rpm or deb files please (and how I go about using them? Or is there another alternatibe within the repositories to get my scanner working?
Many thanks in advance
