I am running Fedora 18 and have CUPS and the brother printer driver and CUPS wrapper (provided by brother) installed on my machine. The printer model is the MFC-255CW. This printer works seamlessly with my Apple MacBook, but it is not working with my linux computer. I also made sure that my primary user has CUPS permissions to submit print jobs to the printer.
I was able to setup the printer in CUPS, and in the admin tab when I check on the sole printer setup, the MFC225CW, I can see the following:
Description: MFC255CW Location: Home Driver: Brother MFC-255CW CUPS (color, 2-sided printing) Connection: http://192.168.1.5 Defaults: job-sheets=none, none media=na_letter_8.5x11in sides=one-sided
However, whenever I submit a print job or even just try to print a test page, I always get back "printer status busy". However, on the printer itself, I have no issue printing a test print page, and my MacBook has no problem printing.
I suspect that the issue is either between CUPS and the printer, or perhaps my configuration of the printer? How can I further troubleshoot and isolate what the problem is?
