How to Install Brother Printer, Scanner MFC7460DN in Fedora30

Hi spn2, welcome to the forum.

In case you use gnome desktop

1- Open settings and go to the option printers, you need add the printer and select the driver what is recommended for your printer with the option search or select one manually or maybe from a file.

Look the screen captures (sorry for the swedish)


2- After you did install the printer with the right drivrutin you should only run the app “simple scan” what automatically would detect the scanner.

It is how i have installed my printer+scanner,

if you have problem with the printers driver you can download them from the manufacturer’s website , in this case they give support to linux.

Alternative no gnome desktop: You can install the printer via cups http://localhost:631/admin to add the printer you need do login with your user and password

you can read a bit more about in a related post Printer either takes 5-60 minutes to process or doesn't print at all - #10 by xtym

I hope it help you.
