I am trying to install a Brother printer (DCP-L2520DW).
I had no success using the RPMs prepared by Brother, but in their CUPS RPM variant (Printer Drivers | Downloads | DCP-L2520DW | United States | Brother), the PPD file is present. So I could easily add the PPD while adding the new printer.
However this is not sufficient since the CUPS filters are not found:
[XXX@fedora Downloads]$ lpstat -p printer Brother is idle. enabled since Mon 28 Jun 2021 03:48:29 PM CEST File "/usr/lib/cups/filter/brother_lpdwrapper_DCPL2520DW" not available: No such file or directory
The file containing the filters is also present in the RPM, but I cannot
cp it into “/usr/lib/cups/filter”.
Is there a way to make CUPS look for these filters elsewhere? If not, what shall I do?
I did look at other related posts but they pointed to an non-brother RPM and the link is now broken.
