Installare stampante di Brother MFC-5890CN in Ubuntu nuovo installer tools

Aggiornamento dicembre 2014

In questo blog più volte si è parlato della configurazione e dell’installazione della stampante Brother multifunzione MFC5890CN in Ubuntu e Debian.  Recentemente ho avuto modo di constatare che Brother ha cambiato la parte del sito relativa alle funzioni di servizio e ha reso finalmente disponibile un installer ( Driver install Tool )  da linea di comando che consente di installare i drivers e di configurare la stampante e scanner in modo efficace e semplifice. In passato infatti c’era sempre stato stato qualche problema in particolare in Ubuntu 64 bit con la gestione dello scanner.  Il  Driver install Tool  è alla versione 2.0.0.1 ( marzo 2014 ).

La pagina dedicata alla MFC-5890CN

Di seguito la procedura di installazione in ubuntu 14.04 e ubuntu 14.10.

Una volta scaricato il driver install tool:  linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1

decomprimere e rendere eseguibile con

gunzip linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1.gz
sudo chmod +x linux-brprinter-installer-2.0.0-1

Quindi avviare e seguire la procedura guidata che inizia con la richiesta del modello di stampante prosegue con la configurazione della stampante e termina con la parte dedicata allo scanner.

Di seguito sono riportate le fasi principali della procedura
