-===== Linux ===== 
-  - Install [[arch>​extra/​x86_64/​cups/​|CUPS]] 
-  - Install [[aur>​brother-brgenml1]] 
-  - Start CUPS service <​code>​sudo systemctl start org.cups.cupsd.service</​code>​ 
-  - Turn on the printer, plug it into a USB, then test to see if it's recognised <​code>​lsusb</​code>​ 
-  - Go to the CUPS web interface at http://​localhost:​631/​ 
-  - Select '​Administration'​ 
-  - Select 'Add Printer'​ under '​Printers',​ then enter your root user password (or [[archw>​CUPS#​Configuration|add your user to the printer admin group]] [also [[#Details: groups|see below]] ]). 
-  - Your printer should be shown in 'Local Printers',​ select it's radio button and select '​continue'​. 
-  - Make sure everything'​s to your liking on the next screen, then select '​continue'​ 
-  - Again, just make sure things look goo then select 'Add Printer'​ 
-  - On the select options screen you might want to change the '​Number of Input Trays'​. I believe three is correct. Don't hot 'Set default options'​ till You've checked every page. You might want to lower the DPI and turn on 'toner saver mode', for example. 
-  - Open a PDF or something and it should be working! 
  
-nbjp Set your default paper size in /​etc/​papersize. This also applies to other programs, for example ​[[..:​software:​Scribus]]+===== Arch Linux ===== 
 +Works with [[..:​software:​CUPS]] just fine if you install [[aur>​brother-brgenml1]].
  
-==== Details: groups ==== +nbjp In the [[..:software:CUPS]] ​options screen you might want to change the '​Number of Input Trays'I believe three is correct.
