    How to speed printing with a Brother HL-4040CDN


    So I have switched entirely to linux I have all the windows programs I need running in Wine, but my only gripe is that in Windows I could print 20 pgs/min in Ubuntu I can currently print maybe 4 pgs/ 20 min...

    I downloaded extra CUPS drivers from synaptic for my printer along with the LPD network driver when I first configured the my brother network printer.

    Thanks

    Go to the Brother website, and download the drivers from there. Follow the instructions on the site for installation.

    m trying to install the drivers directly for the Brother Site and I get the following after copying and pasting this code into the terminal: Command (for dpkg) : dpkg -i --force-all (lpr-drivername) I used sudo and without sudo


    OUTPUT:

    Quote:
    sam@samdesktop:~$ sudo dpkg -i --force-all hl4040cdnlpr-1.0.3-1.i386.deb
    dpkg: error processing hl4040cdnlpr-1.0.3-1.i386.deb (--install):
    cannot access archive: No such file or directory
    Errors were encountered while processing:
    hl4040cdnlpr-1.0.3-1.i386.deb
    sam@samdesktop:~$ dpkg -i --force-all hl4040cdnlpr-1.0.3-1.i386.deb
    dpkg: error: operation requires read/write access to dpkg status area
    sam@samdesktop:~$


    what do I do?

    Use the full path to the .deb file, with sudo. It's probably not in the directory you're currently in. Use tab completion if it is in the current directory. Or use Nautilus, and navigate to the file, right-click on it, and select "Open with gdebi", if you have it installed.
