Brother DCP-135C and ubuntu

I just used a few minutes getting the above mentioned printer working with ubuntu, normally most printers I have used works out of the box with ubuntu, but not this one. My solution seems to be quite simple, however it may be that it is not the correct way to do it, but it worked for me 🙂

  1. Install brother-cups-wrapper-extra
  2. In “Printer configuration” (System -> Administration -> Printing) click “New”, select “Brother DCP-135C”, click “Forward”, wait for search to finish, click “Provide PPD file”, select the file /usr/share/ppd/Brother/brdcp135c.ppd, click “Forward” and click “Apply”

You should now be able to print with your DCP-135C printer – however this is just the printing part, for the scanner to work, you probably want to look at http://solutions.brother.com/linux/en_us/index.html
