First, a big up to Brother: their printers are excellent, and they provide drivers for Linux! In only hate it that they display a warning before the toner is actually empty… But that’s another story. So in this post, I will explain you how to install brother HL 227DW driver on debian x64.

To install the driver on the x64 architecture you should go to Brother’s driver download page: and download the .deb packages corresponding to your printer model. Then to install these packages:

sudo apt-get install ia32-libs
sudo dpkg -i --force-all hl2270dwlpr-2.1.0-1.i386.deb cupswrapperHL2270DW-2.0.4-2.i386.deb
sudo  dpkg  -l  |  grep  Brother
firefox http://localhost:631/printers
