I have followed this instructions to install my brother MFC-L2710DN driver. After installing the printer, I can see it in cups:

MFCL2710DN    MFCL2710DN        Brother MFCL2710DN for CUPS     Inactiva - "El archivo "/usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_MFCL2710DN" tiene permisos no seguros (0100777/uid=0/gid=0)."

The owner of /usr/lib/cups/filter/ is root. These are the printer settings:

Descripción:    MFCL2710DN
Controlador:    Brother MFCL2710DN for CUPS (escala de grises, dúplex)
Conexión:    dnssd://Brother%20MFC-L2710DN%20series._ipp._tcp.local/?uuid=e3248000-80ce-11db-8000-3c2af4c53b80
Opciones predeterminadas:    rótulos=none, none papel=iso_a4_210x297mm caras=one-sided

If I go to printers on Debian 9, it shows this status: "The status of the printer is 'cups-insecure-filter'".

Errors are logged in this file /var/log/cups/error_log

If I execute the Debian troubleshoot, I get more information about the error

Can somebody help me to install properly my printer machine?

  • Are you able to print to it? Have you run cupsenable and cupsaccept on the printer? – Nasir Riley Dec 7 '19 at 17:38

    Try sudo chmod 755 /usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_MFCL2710DN like here and restart cups. Btw., two of your links are already dead. – Freddy Dec 7 '19 at 19:20
