I'm attempting to get Brother HL-L2301-D printer running under Gentoo.
I've downloaded the RPM and installed it under Gentoo. The device is detected and I've set up a udev rule to make it available at
/dev/usb/lp0, although it now appears there not as a symbolic link as it did yesterday but is still present at that location
# lsusb | grep -i brother Bus 001 Device 100: ID 04f9:009a Brother Industries, Ltd HL-L2310D series # l /dev/usb/lp0 crw-rw---- 1 root lp 180, 0 Apr 21 10:24 /dev/usb/lp0
I've tried adding the printer in two ways after reading this thread that suggested using the
usb://Brother/HL-L2310D%20series?serial=### rather than
# lpadmin -p Chompy -E -v usb://Brother/HL-L2310D%20series?serial=E78096L9N400161 -i /usr/share/ppd/cupsfilters/brother-HLL2310D-cups-en.ppd -L "Study" # lpadmin -p Chompy2 -E -v usb://dev/usb/lp0 -P /usr/share/ppd/brother/brother-HLL2310D-cups-en.ppd
The printer is turned on and lights indicate its "Ready", both
Chompy2 (daughter chose the name, quite perceptive for 6yo!) are listed in the CUPS WebUI and yet if I try to print a test page to either I'm told...
Processing - "Waiting for printer to become available."

Same happens if I try using
Stumped as to what to try next, any suggestions would be gratefully received. I'm keen to get this working and then share it on the network.
